Throwing you away

Custom User Avatar
More by this author
Like a drip of poison is how you spoke,
It sounded worse than a foul disease,
Your poison ran straight to my bleeding heart,
Like your fate was trying to hurt me,

Your venom sank deep into my veins,
Dissolving the unwanted nothing you had left,
The love that had washed from your red eyes of hatred…
Crushed my lungs as they screamed for your love,

Its time to forget you, my common sense reminds me,
I’ll throw you in the nearest dustbin, lock you in the nearest cage,
But our memories stop me from finishing my new mission,
I can’t completely discard you from my broken thoughts,

I’ll just shut you away in the back of my mind and throw away the key.

I really like this! Extremely well written, and i'm not sure if you meant to however one less line than a Sonnet could represent how you used to love them but withdrawn back from that feeling.
