stripped back

** stripped back **
These eyes are filling
And cruelty stalks
Empty caverns of the heart
Ventricles of joy and love
Stripped back to raw rough surface
An anger unacceptable
A sense of loss irreplaceable
Hanging waiting for a sign
Hoping executioner is in today
Can pull the lever and end the story
Before the complete misery arrives
No escape on any level
Tried your best to not need
Any other time or place
For this one is a misery
And if hope should bloom
Would drain remaining strength
Kill me surely as
A knife plunged deep and twisted
Into my empty heart.
