House Of Torment - Poem by nikki hays

I’m dying endless shadows of abandoned pain
Twisted fingers manipulating my pale body
Anxiously awaiting the end I cry
Solemn tears of what remains skeletal pain

You came without warning into my life
Entered my body and ripped my world apart
This was the beginning of the end I felt
The very spirit stolen from me in wave upon wave of endless strife

You killed me that night but I never knew
The sensuous embrace cut deeper than any blade
Fluctuating orgasmic passion never again could I feel
Spoiled like rotten fruit for all time this is what became of me after you

Darkened erotic pleasures the highs of ecstasy
Fingers like razors tore at my back leaving your mark for eternity
Lips like vines entangled the two of us
And in the final twist of fate you stole my life from me

Fanatical torment encrusted with lies
Bruised and battered but not yet your wife
This is our story my house of pain
This is the story you made of my life
