Broken Hearted Shame

by CourtneyLouxxx   May 21, 2007

My inner soul defeated
A path I choose to roam
Far from the broken
The beaten and from home

The hands that smothered
A girls rosy red cheeks
The brutality of this beating
A smile, the face seeks

Trembling little bodies
The tears that silently flow
Rushing down her cheeks
As ruby red they glow

The arms that held her tightly
Grasp savagely at her skin
The violence of this love
The anger she locks in

The words so full of shame
Can't leave her split lips
She screams her secret pain
Watching the blood slowly drip

The lips that choose to kiss
A tear stained cheek or two
A broken heart remains
A pain felt by few.

    From the toip to the bottom.
    Bottom to top it stops.
    From the core of forgotten.
    To the middle of my thoughts.
    Taken far from the saftey.
    The pictures there.
    Memory wunna see me.
    So why should i care.
