Gone - Poem by Lucifera Santez

Every beat of my heart bleeds,
Every whisper in the dark speaks,
Ghostly tears drying on my cheeks,
It has been years since I’ve cried.
These walls suffocate me,
My soul seeks revenge on my heart,
And my heart hates me,
My skin crawls from my touch,
Nails digging,
Bleeding much,
And it drips down my fingertips,
Like broken pieces of red pearls.
Love and betrayal twine along,
Like the softest beat of a sirens song,
Akin to amber drops of poison in blood,
Like starving sighs of lover left too long.
Like a flower starved of sun’s golden glow,
Resembling a rose buried deep in snow,
Tender aching,
Heart erratically beating,
Feels like last touch of your hands,
Buried deep in my memories,
Sings a song of love’s sorrow to me,
All this things remind,
The things we left behind,
And it hurts so bad,
The pain is so steep,
I stand within these walls,
And they tell again you’re gone,
Too far away,
And I’m left,
Broken and alone………………………….
