Picture to Burn

Slamming doors,
Unheard cries,
Broken hearts,
Last goodbyes,

Saddened faces,
Cryptic words,
Starless nights,
Wingless birds,

Painful pictures,
Countless lies,
Clouded stories,
No surprise,

Piercing arrows,
Desolate hearts,
Neglected relationships,
Hopeless starts,

Meaningless memories,
Empty promises,
Hollow touches,
Splintered canvasses,

Ghostly silence,
Abandoned arms,
Stupid emotions,
Put on charms.

Simple picture,
Torn up trust,
Burning fire,
Dissipated lust,

Imprinted images,
Sliced up hearts,
Immense pain,
Launched darts,

Reached limit,
Time to burn,
All the pictures,
No return.

You are more than welcome. I even read it out loud--it has great rhythm. I especially like the part about splintered canvasses
