O Wretched

O wretched lover,
Teller of tales,
Bringer of hate,
You failed me
Wicked may the pain be in your heart,
Burning long,
Burning deep

O wretched whore,
Eyes sunken and drawn,
Lips stained purple,
Your plan failed
Outside is a lie
Inside your garden,
Life is knocking on Heaven’s door

O wretched child,
Innocent and pure,
Conceived in thoughtless haste,
Mother failed you
You won’t be spared
Death is your only deliverance
From your watery tomb

O wretched lover,
Hollow soul,
Evil liar,
You failed you,
Failed us all
My heart is dead
To the tears you shed

  3. A lot of repressed pain coming from that one! I enjoyed it though, passion in poetry is so key to my appreciation of it, whether this means a positive or negative energy!

    First timer to this blog. I likey a lot. Btw, people often confuse pessimists with realists, don't they?
