THE COATED LIGHT
The frozen heart,
The cover smiles
ego, happiness, principles,
torn by a hungry vulture
that uses love to destroy.
I won’t tear to please.
I won’t kill to see a smile on your face.
I won’t laugh because you’re joyous.
I won’t starve because you’re not hungry.
I won’t live with the flies
because u chose to sleep in the grave.
I won’t cry because you chose to
Hide your teeth from the sun.
I won’t hate because your heart
is filled with despite.
I won’t die because you choose to live no more.
Because it’s me I tend to please.
His touch softness my voice.
His voice calms me down.
His stare brings shyness to my face.
His skin brings shivers to my body.
His cuddle brings life to my soul.
His laugh awakens my veins.
His dance blinds my future.
His face that melts my heart.
His lips that I wish to bite.
His hands that hold with tenderness.
His hugs that get me close to his chest.
His skin that gives me goose bumps.
His voice that awakens my desire.
Tears, smiles, comfort, hugs,
Anger, love felt with in
Hope found, joy seen.
Reason to live found,
Body feels at peace.
Eye evident with passion
The care, the warmth,
The heartbeat, the dreams
that was meant to celebrate.
the whole, the broken pieces
the pain, the regret, the hate,
the sorrow, the bitterness, the hopeless body
all because you are no more.
