Let It Rot - Poem by Leria Hawkins

Let It Rot
Date: December 29,2015

There is no weakness in your eyes
No long held sentiment in your sighs
There's only hunger roiling deep
Laced with lines of cool deceit

The snow falls down in flurried white
To fade away in dead of night
Whispers sweet, roll off your tongue
False promise of the days to come

Your favor's wrapped, tied in strings
Broken promise wears the ring
That binds so tight, your stony heart
And leaves you prowling in the dark

A truth denied, stings my eyes
To melt away the thin disguise
B‘cause love can't warm a frosty heart
That'd rather stay lost in the dark

If wishes were more than fairy tales
There'd be no mountains left to scale
I'd simply wish upon a star
To make as new, my cuts and scars

Depravity is such a malicious thing
The master of your twisted dreams
It blinds your eyes, to what is real
Deprives you of the warmth to feel

But the loss is yours to carry on
Just one more in your bag of bones
Another skeleton to hide away
Another love left to decay
