When I looked right into your eyes,
Your soul showed truths slain, sealed by you;
And like scenes seen in horror flicks,
They spooked my mind, made body sore.
Life once eyed in your eyes grew dead
As your voice waned, losing its charm!

What transpired next caused me great harm,
For I learnt I was conned, fooled
By you and those you had valued;
Places you’d been to were revealed,
So were lanes you’d trodden upon;
I smiled though my heart rang bruised bells.

What I wished was to let out yells
Loud enough for people to turn,
Watch me weep, know what I’d gone through.
Sadly, I willed to let go, dust
Those thoughts that had caused grief and pain.

Those thoughts though are time and again
Wakened from sleeps too sound and deep;
And like damned dust that arises
When a building meets its sad end,
Those thoughts fly high, topping my soul.

State what can now make me pure, whole!
For part of me has delved into
Realms that are as dark as your soul!
Must I head to a place where light reigns,
Drowning troubling thoughts that cause no gains?
