Crimson tides

by Teatart

Why do I allow you to hurt me?
I put up walls
Yet you break them down
Brick by brick
Cementing my trust
Paving a pathway to deceit

There are no windows to your soul
No shelter from the storm
You feign warmth and mercy
But your heart is cold and cruel
Solidified in stone
Unable to recognize or give love

As a spider spins a web to catch its prey
You thread an ornate tapestry of lies
Your tongue drips golden nectar
Smooth and sweet
A disguise for the bitter aftertaste
Left by your venomous poison

I feel drained, lost and alone
Carving my way through a maze of emotion
Despising my own weakness to resist
Your faux vulnerability
Your façade of brokenness
Mirroring that which I do not want to see

For I am broken too
Fragmented, cracked, fragile
Wanting to believe your love can set me free
Understanding that that can never be
Only one can mend this gaping wound
And only by His crimson love can I be washed clean.

Waiting on a broken heart

by Teatart

Where do broken hearts abide?
Who fixes them?
Who picks up the pieces?
Who applies the glue?

Is there hope of a cure?
A war has erupted within
Emotion raging against thought
A myriad of feelings, questions, guesses

A dark shadow has washed over me
I feel burdened with the debris
That has led me astray
Left stark and bare for the world to see

There is nothing more to give
My heart has been taken away
Weighted down and
Drowned at sea

Perhaps that’s where broken hearts go
To the ocean floor
In a place where not even
The light of day dare reach

I hope it will come back to me
One day, in some way
The chains will be broken
And the tide will bring it home

Until when, until then
I wait, I watch and I hope to see
Waiting for the day
You come back to me
