My entry for PoetryBattles Round3.

On what it takes for someone mentally violated to break free from the poison of putrified love, in search of an inner heaven of hope.

Couldn’t you see the pain in my eyes?

Couldn’t you see the pain in my eyes? My agonised winces as I stifled my cries?

You crucified me

You crucified me and I happily bled.

Why couldn’t you, dear, for once understand-

Why couldn’t you, dear, for once understand- you were rotting me into thewless sand!

No doubt I’m dying to yell and scream

No doubt I’m dying to yell and scream as I run from your demons in my dream,

but I lay quiet, quivering

but I lay quiet, quivering beside you, love.

How I yearn for your fingers through my hair!

How I yearn for your fingers through my hair! For your company and affectionate care!

Perhaps you don’t know that I too feel

Perhaps you don’t know that I too feel and that low blows take time to heal.

You are dearly drunken

You are dearly drunken in scented spring.

Or perhaps I’m going paranoid or worse-

Or perhaps I’m going paranoid or worse- I cannot comprehend your endearment’s course.

Dark as death the crevasse of hate

Dark as death the crevasse of hate has come to raze the path of my fate.

The howls of the ghoul

The howls of the ghoul though feverishly fade.

My plea resounds across the ocean yonder,

My plea resounds across the ocean yonder, breaking these bonds through tender thunder.

I bet it is time for me to leave

I bet it is time for me to leave for you, beloved, you make me grieve

in grey shadows

in grey shadows beneath silent smiles.

I bet it is time for me to go.

I bet it is time for me to go. But I love you, so I’ll go slow.
