Lost love
by Valerie Liana Richardson

The strongest,
thickest love I'll ever know,
you made me mad,
you made me weak.
My virgin heart... you took defeat!
I fell into a deep, dark pit.
For years I wondered if this is it.
My heart was taken and returned quite damaged.
So my lies repaired it.
Now you're in another league,
where I just don't belong.
But it's where your courage has led me 
from this maddness where I lay.
Drowning in the remains
of my own foolish wounds,
I sit here by myself...
the forgotten,
the changed.
This valve dripping thick syrup
ninety beats per minute,
where my mind has learned to trick me,
somehow, I don't know.
For you somehow
swallowed me whole.
