Erase You

Feedback is welcome. "Erase You" by Lydia Kiei Lynne (C) 2010 You said, abandonment, there was no chance. No chance of you leaving me, Said our souls had been bound since we were infants. But now I look around, and you're the one I don't see. I want to erase you From every part of me, Every inch of marked skin, Erasing what I thought was true.

Uncaring world in another's mentality Not cruel intentioned But cruel intensity Made real by assumptions. Words unspoken to avoid The confrontation, to make others feel...Read On
