Love's Death - Poem by Ebony Amethyst

I loved you once,
Never again.
Your face,
A glimmering veil
All held in vain.

And here I am,
Trying to get to you
To hold my hand,
To understand,
But you never even cared
The threats,
The promises,
You never hurt enough,
To leave me coming back for more

Your eyes bore into mine,
Betray no emotion
Beginning of a life
The ending of mine
Etched onto my fingerprints
Behind the closed doors

The fire threatens to consume me with
every waking minute,
not alive nor dead,
I will never forget the moments that we spent.

Too scared to be held,
‘Cause to be loved is the curse
Love consumes,
It can also break a heart in two.
