Love Is Like A Poison - Poem by Paul Cardinal

Lost of all sensations…
Stumble with false expectations.
I wish I can go back.
Before my world turned pitch black.
Before my life was dismember.
All I can wish for is to remember.

I held you in my arms.
Kept you safe from harm.
Shielded: your delicate heart.
Braced your life from the start.
Fate had different plans.
You fell into misguided hands.

When I called you on the phone…
All I heard was a dial tone.
When I read the text…
I wondered what was next.
You sent me your tears.
I told you my fears.

Reached out for you…
But now you’re too far away.
I didn’t think this was true…
That I can only sit and pray.
Tears fell to the ground.
I scream out, without a sound.

I now walk alone.
With pain aching to the bone.
Forever wishing I was made of stone.
You drive me insane…remembering your kiss.
You make me sick….remembering all of this.
I hope for your care.
For you to tell me it’s only a nightmare.
Searching in the dark…
I look for a light to be sparked.

Now the darkness, overcomes with complete control.
I gave you my heart and you took my soul.
