~While we're all being emo - I might as well make use of it.
Tears of Blood
You promised me, not so long ago
Every word that comes out of your mouth
turns into stone
heavy and immeasurable
yet easily disregarded, much like air...
I see it in your eyes,
lovely violet orbs
that promise no, I will never let you go
every whispered lie that comes off those beautiful lips
that kiss me every night.
Long, frozen nights that are seemingly endless
the lack of your prescence tells me
where you are.
I weep frozen tears, in this broken night.
Will you go on lying?
The man behind a mask
Hiding his identity from everyone
Even I do not know who you are
I can no longer answer
these questions which drag me
ever deeper with their sharp claws and twisted hands
under frozen waters.
I weep tears, their droplets crimson
that spatter the wooden floor
Eyes that may never see again
the soft curve of your cheek, the hard line of your jaw
soft eyes, lying eyes
your deceptive gentleness
that voice which can turn hard and uncaring in an instant
ordering the deaths of millions
that voice which caressed me -
I raise unseeing eyes to the moonlight,
I ended the poem thinking of Shirley and Lelouch. Didn't exactly turn out the way I hoped it would, but hope you enjoyed it anyway!
