I Am

by xTheEcstasyOfSuicidex   Jul 30, 2006

A shattered cough,
Lost breath,
Broken skin,
I am Death.

A single look,
A glance above,
A glimmering eye,
I am Love.

A touch that lied,
Broken Trust,
Lost Love,
I am Lust.

Wondering alone,
Lost Fate,
Never Love,
I am Hate.

A gracious smile,
A golden key,
A gate of Trust,
I am Destiny.

Unbroken lies,
Not left in dust,
An open arch,
I am Trust.

A broken smile,
I do defy,
What is truth?
I am a Lie.

A happy time,
Everyone's strife,
You'll never forget,
That I am Life.
