Another petal falls (dedicated to a close friend)

by Michael   Sep 25, 2017


..she had no knowledge, as
he swept her off course;
into his tortured mind.

Until!

He showered her with
adverse affection!

He knocked the stuffing out of her heart;
as her love cushioned the weight
of his blow; ramming his
subservience down her
throat; raping her of
self-esteem

He snapped
at her integrity
she was left to clean up his
brutality; leaving her sentimental value

-worthless

She!

Suffocated;
in darkness;
dying slowly in silence;
drowning in loneliness.
Her colour ran cold;
and her warming
glow; dimmed
and faded

A beautiful..
Shrink-
i
n
g

violet-
plucked by unearthly hands,
whose mind already held
fallen petals
from his
past.
