Word of the Day Challenge #111-Untitled Poem

Tears
seeping
below the surface
grin
stylized upon my lips
eyes
darting
gazing dark khol enlarged
beauty
bought
sold
no thought given
no acknowledgement of wants
only
what will gain
what will follow
from bridal truth.
Bound
upon altar of matrimony
girl…..
to
woman of manor
terror
no help
all failed
to see beneath debonair couture
loathing
man no longer
monster made.
In garden bloom
black and red
roses of grandeur
forever fertilized
by manor born man
beast of husband
widowed so young
no one knows
the body lies
beneath tapping feet.

Eternal Agony

Hard
scanning
late night text
broken hearted
truth
right before mine eyes
time
turn away I must
take back my heart
entrusted to you
walked upon
shat upon
left in the dirt
so sure
you were
that I would wait.
Hands clasped
head bowed
praying
(not my thing)
for you to return
hope
soon
sighted in the night
walking towards
hands held out
no more
I can take it
no more
your lack of care
lack of simple truth.
I thought you did
only…..
I have discovered
I have always felt for you
more than you ever have for me.
Good bye.
So long.
Farewell.
Heart
shredded
taken back
tucked away
trust no more
now
alone forever.
