His venomous words infiltrated my soul
And sent my self esteem crashing
I used to hear voices
But those voices died with us
I used to stare into the fire and admire it
But even the ashes of our love had been swept away
Because I couldn’t face the burning heat. 
So when loneliness came and all my friends were away,
I got the short end of the stick
With none to blame but myself
For letting him get to me.
Blinded by love, I failed to see
How much he took from me
And what little he gave back
Battered me and tore me up.
My heart no longer beats
At a pace unknown to man
When I hear his name
Or am assaulted by thoughts of what used to be
A blazing fire in the dark
On which the sun has now risen
Not my best poems but my thoughts are all over the place right now… I hope you like it though.
