Creeper

Words of love
No longer pass my lips
Heart healing slowly
Mind still trying
To understand
The why’s of everything
It didn’t have to be
The way it was
Or end the way it did
You took something
That should have been
A beautiful thing
Twisted it into the
Grotesque shapes
Of a nightmare
That digs it’s
Claws in the mind
Ripping and tearing
Gouging deep scars
And can’t be forgotten
I could have loved you
Forever if you had let me
I am not sure why
You pulled away
My love was pure
Like spring flowers
Yours was tainted
A creeper vine
Slowly choking the life
From the forest
I now know your love
Was a lie
