Double-Edged Sword - Poem by Soren Valentine
You are my comfort, yet you are killing me.
Your eyes are moons to which part of my heart belongs.
Your voice fills me with happiness, yet it plunges me into an abyssal ghyll. It raises me like a mountain, yet it melts me like metal in the fires beneath the earth.
You make me weak, yet you strengthen me in a way you could not imagine.
The stars light your beautiful face and the moon brings out what I truly love.
That face is burned into my dreams, haunting me every night.
You take the breath out of me, and it saddens me that you can't see that.
You're like an ethereal black hole, always drawing me closer to you.
I try to let you go, but I'm trapped in your Event Horizon. In a way, I don't mind...
Like a storm cloud she is beautiful and inspiring, but O! how hazardous. Yet, how can I not feel this way?
I have bethought myself of all the days we have known each other, and these memories are so warm in my frozen wasteland of a heart.
By the Sea is where you reside, betwixt the Mountains and Unlight.
Though you cannot see it, you have poisoned the Fields of my inner person. You cause me such pain, but, maugre this, I love you so.
My heart burns and aches when you aren't around me, and my world goes grey. I am benighted when your radiance is nowhere to be found.
I suppose it's for the best though...
'She can never...'
And I scream...
Whispers all around me...
'Her heart belongs to Another...'
