Deathly Love

Sometimes love is death

My heart slumbers in chains
Which leave out the light-
And suck in all the night  
 
Dark and dismal  
Let it be  
...can I ever be free?
 
Rising from ash  
I crawl and grip the green earth  
Savaged and beaten  
I plead to be heard  
 
Desperate to see  
A little light for me  
...can I ever be free?  
 
Challenging my own strength
I am hell-bent on not giving up
I’ll free myself from your sucker love  
...just let me be me
 
My pleading cries echo back a hollow relief  
Another chain rips my heart-
And pulls me beneath  
 
This soul weighs down like a dead sea  
He whispers, ”You belong to me.”  
...your love is death, why can’t you see?
