Word of the Day Challenge #86-Untitled Poem

Pain
burgeoning
building beneath heart
held out
given freely
to have it seized
torn
tattered
tossed to the floor
with blatant disregard.
Hands out
supplication
prayers tumble
blood red lips
no gods to hear
no gods to answer
no gods anywhere
any more.
I gave in
I unfettered my heart
I loosened the chains
handed over the keys
only…….
to be burned again.
More than I can stand…..
More than I can count…..
every time I fall
swear to myself
it will be the last time
I will give nothing away
yet I do
coming undone for you.
Hear my heartfelt pleas
do not leave
do not walk away
please come back to me
if only to return the heart
you so callously
ripped apart.
