Treasure Island

Shadow Vanity

(09/30/94 / Small Town USA)

Defeated


A soft sigh of defeat resounds threw the room as she slowly bleeds out. She thinks to her self. I should be use to this pain. It's not like this is the first time I've been hurt like this. A dull throbbing sensation spreads threw out her entire body. Looking at herself her hands tremble with an intensity. Looking at her body she would look fine.... until you look at her back. Sticking out of her back would be a knife. (meteorically) Once again she has been stabbed in the back. Once again she would lose another person she thought was close to her.

    Not all is lost Shadow, Your blood spills into our conscience, your pain... into our hearts,
    But it's their lose, not yours... for their acts of betrayal and hurt...is our gain through your words.
    A very heartfelt piece... It affected me deeply.

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
