Thicket of Ash ©2012 Cg Brumby #4
Worlds apart and I cannot stop thinking about her.
The painful memory is burned into my dark soul.
My home was her carefree laughter, and her warm embrace curbed the winter chill.
She knew nothing of the monster lurking within.
Deceiving her was wrong, but I am damned without choice. It’s who I am.
She trusted me and I abused that trust.
Open arms lured her with the sound of a mesmerising melody where every delicious throb from her slow beating heart orchestrated her demise as I drank.
Seduced like many before, she fell under my hypnotic trance.
My conscience is long dead, but in our tangled dance through that ice-cold thicket I felt love’s familiar stinging prick. Did I fall in love?
Demons from my past, haunt me still.
Such playful poses, those ridiculous heels; as if she could match my height.
All I have to hold are these ashes.
This eternal thorny crown is all that bears her name.
Cruel is my penance for taking love and crushing it without thought for tomorrow.
Gone is the home of laughter, extinguished by winter’s kiss.
Thicket of ash, I bathe in your frozen stare, and walk condemned by lustrous shadows.
