My Lover's Sawn-Off Shotgun

Screamed in verse
Talked in tongues
Forced every last breath
From her lungs

Said she didn't love you
That she didn't want you, too
Yelled and screamed over your desperate pleas
But she knows what she said wasn't true

Tears settle on her lips
Even as she sleeps
A girl too young, too worthless, too shy
Too afraid to be

Inside she knows the truth is nestled
Forced way down deep
This girl's in love
Fallen head right over feet

She knows it does exist
She knows why she persists
He is the reason she wakes
His pain, the reason she breaks

No-one else can compare
When he steps on the scene
Every second she spends missing him
Is a moment she wishes hadnt been

His smile, she awaits with trepidition great
The radiance of a thousand stars
Shines to light the darkest of nights
To illuminate her aching heart

His scent, her lifetime addiction
Her struggle against sanity to from herself free
His taste, oh the contagious disease she would die of
To get one last hint of blissful agony

To burn not a bridge, but a lifeline
Oh what a tragic mistake
To rid herself of vital medication
A fall too hard to break

Don't leave her hanging on
She is but a young girl
She shall mend her errors
She'll prove that you're her whole world

Oh how this girl does love you
How she wishes that you could see
This girl she constantly speaks of
The girl she hates is me .

She loves you.

"She knows it does exist
She knows why she persists
He is the reason she wakes
His pain, the reason she breaks"
I swear to god, that reminds me so much of 'Stirb Nicht Vor Mir' by Rammstein... good job.

This is great!

This is fantastic. I love how each verse flows, and they flow very well. It's a very deep and compelling, and unlike some longer poems, kept me interested the whole way through.
Great job! (: x
