Heartless herald skylark
Visit me no more
I can't help but give out a cry
When I see you at my door.

You found your perfect hiding place
Behind a dead mans resting face
To tell me my love is a waste
Beyond the gates of war

Heartless herald skylark
Please try to ignore
My tender hearts rough pounding
Eating away my core.

Expressionless you mock my pain
With face as hard as stoney rain
No mourn to give what could have been
Or the way it was before

Heartless herald skylark
Why visit me, I implore
When all you do
Is mock my rue
Detaining my front door

This was great! When I was reading it, I felt like I was reading work by an older, classical poet!  I highly enjoyed it :)

Thanks, my teacher said it reminded her of Edgar Allen Poe.
