The Poem With No Name

bad poetry

Outside the lightning is sheeting
Inside her heart stopped beating
His words like a blunt knife slashing
Onto the floor her tears are splashing

She knows it’s not the time for lies
She doesn’t think he can sympathise
It’s so much easier to tear him apart
Than to let him in and open her heart

The more she drinks the more she remembers
Love, lust, hugs and kisses now just history’s embers
Like a child she cried when she tore out his soul
Discarded and abused she threw him in a hole

Into the darkness of the night she calls
Her voice echoing down the empty halls
“My light does shine for you tonight”
“It burns like fire until morning light”

She taught him about life taught him about living
For any of her faults he was always forgiving.
He told her he’d wait for her forever
He’d wait until the twelfth of never

He knows his words cut deep to the bone
He knows his comments made her groan
He knows his actions ignited the flames
She doesn’t realise she’s done the same

For way too long he kept his silence
Thinking what she wanted was compliance
He thought she wanted to make all the choices
He had no idea neither were using the voices

Into the darkness of the night he calls
His voice echoing down the empty halls
“My light does shine for you tonight”
“It burns like fire until morning light”

They’ve been through the good and the bad
But they always thought they were ironclad
They forgot to talk, they forgot to share
They fell too easy into going nowher
e

Through their silent protest they forgot to speak
When words were uttered all they did was critique
They looked for meanings that were not there
They looked for words to create despair

A house divided can be repaired
When both the parties are prepared
To meet in the middle and accept mistakes
And stop making each other today’s headaches

Into the darkness of the night they call
Their voices echoing down the empty hall
“My light does shine for you tonight”
“It burns like fire until morning light”
