Bleeding Love - Poem by Lucifera Santez

I wanted to be strong for you,
I wanted to be naïve,
I feigned ignorance to all atrocities you committed,
“I love you” is all I said.
Day by day,
Night by night,
You loved my flesh,
And I forgave your lies.
We met,
Like storm and shade,
Crashing, burning, consuming
No need for words to be said.
I was a prisoner of my love,
Yet you weren’t keeper of my heart,
So why couldn’t I deny your touches,
Even when I knew,
For you I was a slut, a tart.
You took your darkness,
And filled me with it,
In spades,
Pushing me to shadows,
Bit by bit.
You killed everything I stood for,
But still the word from my mouth is love,
Not hate,
What have you done to me?
What kind of monster have you made?
Has love poisoned my soul?
Turned me in your personal whore?
There is a look of surprise,
As my knife plunges in your heart,
I am setting you free,
Giving you a new start.
All you gasp is why,
I am doing this because I love you,
Not a lie,
This time when you come around,
Don’t mutilate the life I gave,
Don’t let my soul weep,
Mourning on your save,
Go,
I took your darkness in me,
Sold my soul to devil,
So you could be free……………


Poet's Notes about The Poem

this was basically me exorcising myself, purging memories of a shitty friendship and even worse relationship.

    A case of distress and tragedy in bliss of love well depicted in the poem. I like the articulation, insight, and message of the piece. I also concur with the conviction of the poet. Love which is a spiritual experience is by far more than mere glorification of beauty. Thanks for sharing. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON. (Report) Reply
