I Tore The Walls (You Said Goodbye)

June 2, 2008
The ripped wallpaper reveals black holes,
So like my soul, my heart that you stole,
And I hang in the silence of agony,
And I hang in the agony of cold

I gave you a key on a necklace of glass,
I want it to mask, but the demon does pass,
And I cower in shadow of my fury,
And I cower in fury of your last

My hands itch to hold you on last time,
To cross the line, to call you mine,
And I die in the burning of the sun,
And I die while the sun still shines

The line "my hands itch to hold you one last time" is very relatable. This poem is written very powerfully and put a lot of thought into it.

This is really good. But can you like maybe explain what "And I cower in the fury of your last." means? It would make a lot more sense if i knew. Oh and can you please check my work and see if you like it and comment and rate?

I definitely agree - I love this poem! I love how you repeat the main ideas, and then extend then. Elaborate them. I think it has great potential to be the best actually.
