Untitled Word of the Day Poem #22

Sitting in quiet contemplation
Head hung low
Silence
Rebounding
Echoing in his mind
Fleeing
Terror filled nights
Addiction hazed days
Looking
Searching
Yearning
For the one thing
To
Soothe
Silence
Still
Demons dancing
Gorging
Sated upon his fears.
Seldomly accepting
Realizing
Mistakes made
Can have a deadly effect.
Grasping for a lifeline
Afraid
Desperate
Needing
The hand that she holds.
Pulled close
Head upon her breast
Listen
Count
Heartbeats
To settle fears.
Love given
Taken
Abused
Shelter had been found
Sanctuary
Afraid
Divided
Splintered
Shards cutting
Faces seen
Many masks held
She could have been his saviour
He was her black-hearted lover
These two
Founded in the same tale
Facing the same demons
One will escape
One will fall
Free fall
Into the cesspool
Unable to break free.
Tears upon cheeks
Warm disregard
Time has passed
Forgiveness given
Forgotten
Never to be.
