CONSUMED


what have you wrought?

a smothering solitude
this insidious darkness
as thoughts creep.

(once we savored innocence,
virginal and childlike),

     but your heart soured.
a dark vision of pain –
drop
     of
     blood
           follow bitterness,
follow pain,

once consumed, love bled dry.

in a haze of eternal stillness
i still love you.
