Broken But Not Quite Yet Defeated - Poem by Diego Adrian Manriquez

Take those roses now
And burn them
Turn them into lust
What does it take?
To turn something great
And destroy it, destroy it without looking back

Turn away right now before it's too late
And guess what it's never too late for you
We need a new change of plans
Go sleep around have some fun

You're just a teen and it shows
You just wanted to be set free
And the only way for that to happen was getting go for me
I was simple, too simple
You faked what we had
And nothing is what it we started out with

Just another silly game we played
Just remember that I will never be the same
After this ever again
With these scars you've left me with
And your taste of sin

My skin is dry
My mouth is swollen
And to top it all my heart is broken

    Wow! Diego, just the title of this straight forwards poem left me speechless! Very impressive and well penned! It reminds me of poem I wrote and posted titled: A LOVE'S GAME! You can read it when time permits and you will see the similarities! I went through that many times and I survived. I totally refused to stay handcuffed to the chair of the Past when I had the Key to myself free! Guess what Diego? I finally did! Keep inspiring the World with your great writes! Love and Peace for always! ... (Report)Reply
