Emily

Such tender lies, complicit thighs

My tendency to eulogise

It’s me that cries

As you despise

And brings me to my knees

.

Resist I must, this breach of trust

But god the dark consuming lust

Each angry thrust

Turns me to dust

Such eagerness to please

.

Clenched fist, closed mind, I trail behind

The sunlight fades I cannot find

contentment, love, or peace of mind

this vacuum of the cruellest kind

where once I walked at ease

.

So I rebuild, where dreams were killed

Heart filled with hate which once was thrilled

You quench your thirst with tears spilled

Regret is such a bitter pill

But taken, life I sieze
