I love you, I cried.
You laughed that mocking laugh of yours.
My heart shattered as you turned and walked away,
Leaving me battered, broken and alone.
Every tear singeing my bruised eyes..
Every memory piercing through me..
Like a knife.
Curled up on the cold, hard floor..
Until the darkness consumed me,
And there was…
In the darkness
The demons pounced…
I struggled to block them out
But I was trapped, gagged.
Nowhere could I turn…
Throat sore and dry, I could not scream…
Hot tears my only warmth.
The demons dug in their talons
Tearing at my flesh.
I closed my eyes and prayed for death
For that would be the only
