Heart Unmasked

Posted: April 17, 2011 in Creative Writing

Come away from me wicked beauty!

Set my heart free from your torment.

For too long I have lost my serenity,

caught and entangled in your sweet beguilement.

Silence became your song. I am hollow, abandoned and cold.

Yet your voice echoes in the distance

piercing my mind and soul, keeping me in your hold.

Will your spell ever break and release me from your sway?

That I may at last forget the fragrance of your skin,

the tender feel against my body.

That I may yearn not for what had been,

and be rid of your mouth’s taste in my memory.

I ache to be a man for another,

carry through my ideals in love and fidelity;

An angels vow that betrayed you, trust a fool chose to squander.

Come away from me wicked beauty,

let another kindle my fire.

Your ghost and mine belong in times past.

The dawn approaches, we are but a shadow cast.
