The Black Halo

Creeping in the sheets
My heart missing some beats
Wishing you lying here,
Crying myself to sleep
Hoping that you keep
My love in someplace near.
You say that you're alone
When I call you on the phone
Whispering my thoughts in your ear,
Trying to close my eyes
As another part of me dies
Submerging into the darkest lair.
When you came to me that night
Rested your heart in my hands
Your halo falling to the ground
Confessing of another man,
I don't want to hold you anymore
You can no longer live in those lies
The pieces shatter to the floor
--- My broken heart.

I remember all the times
When we would always mime
"I love you" and "I love you too",
It's killing me inside
That it was all a lie
A happy ending undone by you.
I can not face you now
Can not look you in the eye
Because you have hurt me so,
My angel in the dust
Overcame sadly by lust
Now a vision of a dark-winged crow.
Tearing down your pictures from my wall
Ripping out those pages with your name
Waiting until I walk out the door
To forget all that me sane,
I can not trust anymore
My faith wilting with every lie
My soul mourning with every step
---It's over.

Don't Give up on love, because of "your angel in the dust"
Who was "sadly overcome by lust"
Can lust overcome love?
I doubt it. So please try again.

Sad. Haunting. Dark. Bitter. Beautiful. Enchanting.

....I love adjectives...but I cannot think of any that will describe just how intensely wonderful this poem is.
