Love Has Crucified Me

entry picture

Love has crucified me,
My heart wants me to stay,
I can’t walk away from,
The vision of you I pray,
Love won’t let me fly,
My wings they have no life,
Love has crucified me,
And it cuts me like a knife,

I am lying on a road of emotion,
Rolling down a hill of sorrow,
Crashed into a wall of despair,
Riding on a highway to no tomorrow,
I am stuck in a dead end street,
Looking for a guiding light,
Standing forlorn at the crossroads,
With no destination in sight,

I am floating down a roaring river,
Heading for a tempestuous sea,
Swept away on the crest of a wave,
As an ocean of tears consumes me,
No stars shine from the heavens,Only darkness pervades my soul,
I am now just a mere shadow,
Spinning rapidly out of control,

Love has crucified me,
My heart won’t set me free,
I just can’t escape from,
The memory of me and thee,
Love won’t let me go,
It’s nailed me to the floor,
Love has crucified me,
But, I keep coming back for more

You have certainly achieved all you had in mind when it comes to the use of imagery. A poem of loss and devastation with a powerful vocabulary.
Thank you for this,
