Just Another Casualty

I surrendered myself because my heart was broken
I wasn’t wise enough to understand that tangible bliss would deceive me
So I began to love something that
Contained immeasurable impurity
I carried the fractured pieces of my heart like blurred memories
Each one contained remnants of some dreadful treachery
I often held them up to the sun to reminisce in the moments where I was armored in manhood for the sake of another’s nothings
I tarried in their somber melodies
Disappearing in the shadows of soul binding melancholy
Daily I’d lay my heart down and whisper a thousand apologies because
I took the power of love and failed to live its responsibility
Fully aware the wounds will heal but reminded by the scars for eternity
I live with one regret
That I was just another casualty
