Haunting ~*~ Flickering Flames


The fire burnt his heart away,  his soul was torn loose,
 to flee naked across the wastelands of all eternity

The flesh of his mind burnt away to just a black shell,
  permanently destroyed beyond its strength to survive,
 in his world of loss without her

The vocalization of every hurt, every pain that could be experienced,
 was stored in the memory bank of his tortured mind.

She had killed his thrashing heart with her leaving,
 his world of hope and dreams to forever drift,
 on the unforgiving breeze of his soul


His heart smelt like a slaughter house,
 but the stench was still sweet to him in a strange way. 

A uneasy wind skirted up , filling his flared sensitive nostrils,
 with the dust and decay of his suffering heart

As far as his dark eyes could see, there was nothing

 but an unending vista of black mountains,
 broken only by the haunted flickering flames that once was her.

Your Expression is beyond words. You write with feeling. You write with style.
