Words To Ash

My embers burn / A fire roars
My inner war / A blaze of words

I wrote this for you
I wanted you to read it, I really wanted you to

But instead I kept it
So my pain remains hidden

Because I know that I'll probably never see you again
Which means I must find another way for me to be forgiven

Even if it's just a placebo effect
In order for me to try and move on
Because I will always be kind of broken
So this is me trying to undo what you have done

Maybe this has happened to me for a reason
Another   tragic   gift   of   believing
That I don't need vengeance

All you have is a life that is ready to break
All you know is how to reap the innocent's faith
All you will ever have is a mind full of guilt, and it's so ready to cave
All you will ever know are the faces of the past, every single one crying in vain

So I will grasp onto this / Closure drawn from my empty heart
Obtaining my justice / Drying my tears that were shed in the dark

I have what you don't
I know what you won't

The strength of all of these scars
The courage to use every ounce of will power

I will NOT be unforgiven
I will NOT serve your sentence

For what you have done to me
I was able to gain a type of independence
Even though you almost broke me completely
Now I can take whatever hits me, and give pain an acceptance

And when the raging fires in my eyes finally burn out
These   ashes   of   yours   will   fall   down
Scattering justice all around
Even though I know you won't read this
This is for you, Ash

Thank you so much. This one is very close to me. So I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
This is so intensely real and personal I am sure many will pause and hesitate to comment with any depth...but that is it's power, the fact it hits the heart...beat.... pause and say 'whoa'.....because you dared share an experience many of us have had....but few so openly speak.....thank you

Thank you so much for this wonderful comment. Sorry it took me so long to respond, it's been quite the week or two since the last time we spoke.
I'm so glad you found this to your liking. This poem is very close to me, and it helped me out during a rough period time in my life.

This was one of those "must" write poems. There's a lot of truth behind it. It carries a lot of meaning with it.

I could see that. I really love the power you put into this piece. You are such a wonderful writer! :D
