I was inspired to write these words after a friend drove her partner to his untimely death with her coldness of heart and cruel treatment of him.
A Blight On My MemoryYou hold me back With your moans My ecstasy In your desire Is flat You hold me back With your Tears They hold No meaning For me You pulled My spirit From its shelter You squeezed The pulsating Essence Of me You tossed My soul Like a bean bag Up and down Even as my blood Dripped On your Alabaster skin Red hot Not even The mercurial heat Could melt The icicles Of your heart I am a dry shell Empty husk Fit only as feed For the fire That once burned In the hearth Of your core Burning for only Me Let me be Leave me be Your tear drops Are bloody pebbles They shatter And desecrate The stillness Of my new abode Your fake wails A pain Machete sharp Piercing A blight On my memory (C) Celestine Nudanu 14/08/2012
