As blood was spilled
And my pain
Became the pleasure
Of who I once loved
I began
To know loneliness
As more than
Just a friend

As our dance
Of eternal enamoration
Comes to its flourish
I regret to say
That our affair
Was never to last

Tell me its alright
Tell me my tears
Can wash away sins
Say I'm clean
Say I'm more
Than just my skin

I'm more than
Just my weakness
I tell myself
Of that I am sure
Though I can't
Say that
I have much more

A vile smile
Betrays the vexation
Of adding another loop
To my chain
And in goes
The sedative
Into this
Shattered frame
Leaving a hole
That will never fill

Try as you wish
But within me
Just does not exist the will

    General CommentA woman loses her virginity to a man who then gets bored and leaves here for being "impure." Said woman then tries to make sense of how she could simply be used and thrown away.
