What hope?Posted: February 28, 2011
As hands slipped away that promised
To hold on for eternity,and get
Entangled in others,ready to let go.
As forever and ever’s floated off in to the wind
Burst like bubbles,disappear
In to thin air,weep
Translucent soapy tears
As doves of innocence transformed
To midnight ravens,feed off human flesh,
Caw and snigger.Carnivorous.
As tongues that used to explore,enlace
Each other unravel
A wrath of the most horrible kind,Spit
Bite and break
Hearts that swore not to break and bleed
Hearts which swore not to bleed.
Perfection disintegrate,shed it’s perfect cloths
To reveal ugly,flawed skin,and disgust
The most dedicated souls,send them
Hands that caressed,touched
Throttled and deformed figures
Used to be kissed and fondled good night.
As promises shattered,dreams
And faith wings singed,hung
On butcher’s hooks,deceived.
What hope has the rest of us got?
What hope,when even stone statues
