I have travelled the road of shame
Not once and not twice
I lost my confidence on this highway
And couldn’t raise my head to gaze at the sun
I buried myself in mortified agony
Engulfed in a bout of sadness
With a heavy pang in my heart
My mind couldn’t fathom the reason
Why everything seems to go all wrong
Why every step I took ended in pain
It was love that first dealt me a severe blow
When his deception became my delusion
What’s with humanity?
Nobody cares about others emotions
As they unleash the demons that dwell inside them
And punctures the dignity that once was held
The impact of these recurrent vices
Rises to a crescendo every day
And tears my heart apart
And leaves me befuddled
Empathy lives far away in the animal kingdom
‘Cos humans have become too busy to notice the flaws
No one appears to care anymore
No one understands the fragility of the heart
Nobody gives a damn about this sacrilege
That infuses hurtful venoms into the human psyche
Stop these vicious acts
That burst the heart in acute anguish
Stop these gruelling infernos
Spare the world another mental tornado
Submitted for the Daily Prompt – Infuse.
Peace and Love!
