blacken lips from rotten fruit

She spoke hard truths, unrelenting
like a razor to bare turned wrists
they cut me to the quick, deeply
letting poison oozed from the wound

It colored the deepest ebony
like hatred swelling from a darken heart
there from the shadows of humanity
of all of the world to see.

the blacken blood rose
pumping through narrowing veins
constricting my mind in a cloud
choking out the sweetest of thoughts

Her words never seemed more clearer
tho’ they strangled on my heart
held tight within her pressing hand
told me that she never cared, not once

From my eyes tears did flow
blacker then the ink in the well
streaming down swollen face
until the bitterness filled my mouth

None shall see my tears
under naked hand they hide
but even the vilest of hearts
can’t ignore the black stains that cover

None shall hear my cries
under stitched lips they remain voiceless
but she never gave enough love
to turn my heart a beating red

So spoiled the fruit of love
never once picked from the tree
never once tasted the juice of tenderness
until the tree brought forth a rotten harvest.
