I gave my heart
to a monster,
expecting him to change his nature
for my ignorance.

I am not that special.

The one time I believed in
something I couldn't prove was
real, is the one time
I wish I wasn't. If I were
the fictitious thoughts
in a child's mind, then maybe
my wounds could heal

they grow with my suffering...
thrive off this sickness
that I allowed to be born.

I believed in humanity,
now I know we're all just pieces in
one twisted game. Knight
crushes pawn, pawn
pleads to Queen, Queen
slays King.

She's victorious, but what
price did the Mighty Queen pay
for her husband heart on a plate?

I stood silent as you broke my
heart and devoured my soul,
the whole time watching as your
humanity became a slave to
your own demons.

Broken as I may be, I will rise.
It is you that will grow weak the more
you feed. You can take all the
hearts you want, you
will never be whole.

I gave my heart to a monster
but now I see that he
is more damaged than me.

    Nik, this is a gr8 poem. I especially liked when u compared the struggle with "the monster" to a chess game. Brilliant!! I could almost feel the emotions as I read it. It only stinks that u had to experience such hurt. Truly feel for u. But excellent work

    ^^ I loved the way you started this write as it completely consumed me and left me wanting more. The feelings these 4 lines conveyed, as if you knew he mistreated people in the past, but hoped possibly you could be the one he would cherish.. Ah I've been there.

    Then you go on expressing these feelings of hopelessness so vividly I could feel them myself. So heartbreaking!
