Poison or Remedy?

She doesn’t know what the future may bring
Is it poison or love in that sharp sting?
Her strength seems gone and yet it remains
As the toxin courses through her veins
Heart beating faster every day
Not even slowing as she lay
Her heavy head down upon his chest
And closing her eyes for a brief rest
Her heart finally quiets with his touch
To that peace he brings she’ll forever clutch


Poison

Your poison courses through my veins
Tainting my thoughts as it remains
Unable to wash it away
Growing stronger to my dismay
It’s familiar pang I feel within
Like a scorpion sting to my skin
Corrupting my mind and my trust
Until my heart is only dust
Where is the cure for this disease
That has brought me down to my knees


I Will Not

I will not fade away
My presence here to stay
I will not be unseen
Hidden behind a screen
I will not hide in shadows
The light of my heart still glows
I will not run away
For fear of the next day
I will not let fear win
A new life can begin
I will not let hate rule my heart
Its poison would rip me apart


Poison So Sweet

The poison flows through her oh so sweetly
As she fades from this world so discretely
Fading away from the masks and charades
Through her soul the sense of freedom cascades
No longer is she shackled and bound
To a heart that humanity drowned
With its scorn and such contempt
Hid behind all things that tempt
With this freedom newly found
She has reached a higher ground
There are no more tears that she will cry
For all in life that has passed her by
But this freedom has come at a cost
For her heart is now encased in frost
