Brutal Heart Number Two.

Through the driving rain
To the edge of the world as the light fades
An offering of forgiveness through devouring mist
Singing jagged sorrow unto the ocean’s spray
Whisper an apology to the wind
Lost like a tear in the rain

For love grown cold
And given to pain
For tender trespasses gone
To cobwebs gathering
In the corner of an empty room
Scar tissue stretched
Across this heart, long since
Offered to indifference and dust
Time passes like a motherfucker
These days
You can see it on my face

I knew from the start
I would stand
To face the roaring waves
Alone on a night just like this one
Whispering a harsh goodbye
To a love birthed to die young

Tonight it’s all too much
I want
To rip this still beating heart
Right out of my chest
Before surrendering to rest
Laughing in the face
Of ever saying a word like love again
Mold myself into a monument
Of heartless annihilation

Fall to my knees
In supplication
Whispering a prayer
Like honey sliding
Across broken glass
Grim determination to
See the task through and through
As the fog rolls in
Reaching through the dark
For all my bloodied
Unbroken
Brutal
Hearts
