Mark Stone

Rookie (Hinnom)

Betrayal


Offer your excitable tears
and sing your empty words
Have you no fear I know your secret?

The innocent child inside
is long since dead
Don't even think
that I am unaware.

Standing empty heaving with desperate desire
To free myself of your disgrace

Tears of shame and swollen eyes
You stare at the wreck that you have inspired.

I shell scream of growing pains
as bodies swell and their stench
begins to fill the air around me.
Is this your solution?

Tortured souls and shattered dreams
Their hopes petrified in broken graves
Is this my future?

My teeth are bared as I exclaim
I will not be apart of your delusion.

How well do you sleep at night?

    I really like this poem, Mark. If there was a part I'd change it would be 'have created.' I think it's a little too obvious perhaps go for 'you have sculpted' or 'you inspired'. Aside from that, I think it's great, the language is really well chosen and it stabs with emotion. (Report) Reply
