Dark Tides

I tried so hard
to ignore that voice
the one in my head
that chides
that snarks
whispers of despair
not because of pain
but the lack thereof.
I see
how others have looked at me
so I have learned
to show not the face
the reality
head bent to hide wild eyes
sneering lips
as I plot your certain dismiss.
Not demise.
Dismiss…..
like a job interview failed
so have you
in a relationship you carved.
You demanded.
You threatened.
You cajoled.
Made my heart bleed
made me stumble in disgrace
acid tears burn my cheeks
blooded lips tremble.
You clawed at my soul
plucking
snarling
devouring my heart.
pain devised in torture.
Two psychopaths
dance a seductive dance
circling wary at first
come together lover
our pain shall be reaped
over broken stone.
