Your Melody - Poem by The Queen's Dagger

I do not understand
why my heart still bleeds
for him who it cannot have.

I endure the agony,
pierce the pain,
but it is still there.

Why him?

He took my heart
and then ripped it to shreds,
then I did the same to his.

Words forming on our lips,
neither will ever have
the courage to speak.

The words then fall
to the ground
without so much as a

So much regret,
falling withing invisible tears,
making puddles on the ground.

Love is lost in anger,
words of biting truth
make me forget our past.

Only to remember it later,
to shy away in horror
at what The Dragon has done.

The bond broken,
the trust lost.

The heart attempts
to sew itself back together
but it won't hold.

Fire has severed the ties
that once held me,
poisoned the love
I once believed in.

Our story has ended,
the journey over.

And all I want to do
is feel you holding me
just like you used to.
You were my shield.

But no;
you are the Black Knight,
the venomous serpent,
my enemy.

As I strum
the strings of my heart,
they still hum your melody.

    What a poem this is... and how sad.
    Time cannot heal all wounds...
    But it will heal this.
    I promise.
