Black Souls Of The Leftover Heartbreak - Poem by Melissa McDaniel

They came each,
With such destructive force,
They rode each,
With a heartless course.

They burnt our homes,
Then rode on high,
That’s not the mountains casting shadows.
That’s the blackness in our sky.

For the sun never shines,
In this wretched place.
It doesn’t want to view us.
We are a lost cause, a disgrace.

We are a disgruntled bunch,
The left of us few.
Come and join us,
You’ll be one too.

We love to smell you skin,
The flesh on your bones.
We live now for heartbreak,
To hear your screams and groans.

Join us quickly,
And you’ll see what I mean.
For years we’ve been here.
Hatred, violence, pain, is all we’ve seen.

We wait for that one,
To rescue us form the pain and sorrow.
The one to liberate us.
Give us a new tomorrow.

Until then, we are the,
Black Souls of the Leftover Heartbreak

    i absoluty loved this poem. it describes heartbreak perfectly and tells how even though all people look on the broken that the broken still have hope for some one to actually care and try to help them. that is the true meaning of heartbreak. (Report) Reply
