Spread the love

Million twice

Efforts crashed

When l longed for the freedom

I myself caged

And threw away the keys

In my bed of roses

Bleeding dark, oozing colour.

I planted an own seed

Of demolition and strife in the home

I held  so dear.

I cut off the strings to my heart

and let it fall

In a black hole

Without thinking twice

I killed my own

Imagination of affection

And lost the guide maps

In all that confusion

Am my own poison

And you took me in.

Showered and pampered

In the promise of,

A brighter day to come

Am my own poison

Because  l believed

Nat in the lies you told me

But, the tint in your eye…

Saying those words


Am my own poison,

Because even when

There was every get -away from your life,

I still stuck in


I shut all the let-outs

And locked myself in..

In a house of smoke..


Because  l thought help would come soon

For us two.

But l, was wrong

You hide the code

Of the gateways…

And jumped out of the smoke

And jumped out..

Of the fire,

You left me burning up,

Strength, waning

Limbs feeble

I was my own poison,

Because  you  left me behind

And ran for your life.

Is a burst of cold
Desires and wants that drys out wisdom

But with Essy essence be sure to stay calm
