Poem 282 – Have I killed my only light?

Have I killed she who was my only light,
My sun, my moon, my stars?
Oh god! The shame!
How can I bear to look
At this hideous mask of decency
When it was my blade that struck her down,
Wounded her, stole her life
And slaughtered that which I dreamed would love
The hand that ended her sanctity.
Now what! With sin, ashamed,
I ban myself from my fellow man
And flee, to never love again.

Dear readers,

The first two lines have been sitting in my head for some time. It is only now that I have been able to attach a worthwhile poem to them.

Kind regards,

The Hapless Neo-Romantic
