Down into the pit of hell

I do descend ever quick

And ever slippery so...

Pain bursts from my mind

Pervading my whole being


Spurned - - deserted am I

Lost and lonely - - for she

Has left me for another

Untimely and ungodly be

This act of shame by her


Hands knot with rage - - scream

And shout and ululate - - but

Nothing would calm this soul

Inconsolable me grief-stricken

Wretched rag of poor humanity


Warn you will I of woman sly - -

Who takes your very soul and

Heart - - but to rip it from thy

Heaving chest. Malodorous

Female - - beware her treachery


While in your sleep so does she

In dalliance play - - afoot with

Every gadabout or lusty lad

Come cut the heart from my

Chest - - for I would feel it not

A devotion to keep poems deeper than the ocean~

Something about this poem is disturbingly angry, and that comes through. It really reminds me of the last meeting you have with someone you cared for, if things end on a sour note. Someone is always left with this kind of feeling in their chest, I can only hope you were never so unfortunate, but writing like this isn't born of thin air.

Thanks for sharing~
