Twisted Silence - Poem by Samantha White

O twisted silence,
and icy cold.
A heart is shattered,
the story of a girl is told.

Her heart ripped out,
in her chest is a hole.
Her love he took,
Her life he stole.

She closes her eyes,
to fight the tears.
She tries to scream,
but no one hears.

Of the pain he caused,
He will never know.
Of the love she gave,
He will let go.

Her tears of blood,
Fall to the floor.
Still he turns away,
and walks out the door.

Her everything is gone,
Her entire world shattered.
He was all she wanted,
He was all that mattered.

He had set her free,
from her hurt and pain.
But he captured her heart,
and then left a stain.

A stain of blood on her milky skin,
a mark of pain on her tortured heart.
He didn't just break and weaken her soul;
He split her completely and tore her apart.

Though she'd promised to hold on,
that promise she broke.
She finally gave up.
And her final words she spoke.

'O sweet darkness,
Shield me from the light.
Take me away,
and hold me tight.'

The darkness took her,
Her final breath she did take.
Her happiness and smiles,
She would no longer fake.

Away from him and the pain he caused,
from the hurt she is finally released.
She flies high in the clouds where pain doesn't exist,
though he doesn't even know she is deceased.

O twisted silence,
and icy cold.
Of a girl once broken.
The story has been told.
