Cold

The cold trickles down my spine into my legs;
Makes me shiver
I can read the pain; your white lies
I can taste the yearning in your eyes.
The feeling makes me quiver
My heart escapes, shakes, beats, begs
Nightmares scream; I am the deceiver
Unknown qualities make you my only believer
The sound hurts my ears;
Makes me bleed
Pouring out a hell found only in your tears
Somehow I know that I’m the only thing you need
Quick; like the shards made into arrows
Piercing, breaking, devouring my only quest
Like the hero; O’ he harrows
To the rescue of what’s left of the rest
Is this Home because I can’t tell
Never had a real one to lose
If we make our own hell
Then I’ve never gotten to chose
Reaping a harvest that is my own
Such a lovely color you’ve shown
Leaves may change and fall
But you’re still just another recall
To a memory I want to forget
But to deep; like my teeth I grit
Hoping you’ll forget to save me the trouble
The misfortunes slip by o’ so subtle
To the touch, to the taste, to my eyes
Like a phoenix that never dies
But I still wish you were here
O’ my dear
Blessed is the sinner
Damned is the saint
Who can be a winner?
In a portrait with no paint
My hands cannot hold my pain
My faith bleeds out like rain
Killing time to gain woe
I don’t want to reap what I sow
Filling up and spilling over
My cup turns to show her
What I’m made of
I don’t know
Maybe hate; Maybe love
Neither a hinder to show
Can we change the past
I wish
Take your time; not too fast
I’m no feat to accomplish
Words can bleed from my pen
Onto the page
My curse as old as sin
No eyes to see my rage
It’s okay I’ll be fine
One day I’ll get mine
What I’ve been waiting for
All these years wasted
My invisible scars tore
To cherish the love I’ve tasted
I’m comfortably numb
In my own nostalgia
I’ll play dumb
Ignorance is bliss
Optimism; a taste I’ll miss
