In Light That My Heart Is Dead - Poem by Brandon Butler

In the light that my heart is dead.

As if cold and broken

dripping in sweat

Yet I forget this love I'd met

The day that my heart laid in your bed.



Hating to leave

Such a beautiful dream.

No lie could ever deter

That from the end of my race.

I may stay in last place

but instill my heart will still burn



As in the end, I lost.

Brought upon at what cost

The lose of my heart and my soul.

If in pain you most go

though one day you'll be whole

Then in end, I've fulfilled my goal.



To mend whats broken

Ripped apart then left open

To that day we both stayed awake.

I love you my dear,

though my love I fear,

will take hold and control our souls

That are paths may past

As I drink from this flask

At least it maybe an escape.


The end of ends

of whats began

not the end as ones end may seam.

That every night thing brings.

such wonderful dreams

As in still my heart lay for yours.



And as in end of days,

all fears fad away.

As forever I will lay in your gaze.

That forever we'll hold,

one thing we've both told,

I love you with all of my soul.

    This is great poem, when read out loud it rolls off the tongue and gives vivid images to the reader as to what the writers wants to remember and what they want to forget.. it's passionate and grows with intensity, until at the end a resolution is met.

    Lovely writing and really enjoyed.
