#68) The Extraction of You

Once, long ago, I poured my heart out, right till it emptied; and found the blood therein thick, stagnant, and repulsive

.

It was so far from the realm of purity, that the seeds of love sprinkled within its putrid soup, had been sapped of all life, and reduced to shells

.

Envy and jealousy had spread like cancer through my veins, turning what once ran sweet as wine, into a rancid stream of filth

.

I was thoroughly disgusted with myself

.

T’was only natural I then disposed of my heart, and all of its rank contents

T’was only natural I cleansed myself of you, and your infecting poison

.

Rather I be empty, than filled with dross

Rather I be cold, than burned by lust

Rather I be calm, than swept away

Rather I be silent, than curse each day

.

Only a fool would hold fast to, a heart so polluted by one such as you

By one wont to flutter mindlessly through, fields of red roses, and never stay true

.

Fool I am not, broken by you

Fool you will never, color me blue

.

My heart is forsaken, drained fully dry; my mouth holds a smile, for I cannot cry

.

You’ve made me much stronger than I was before; I emptied you out and locked every door
