The Abyss

The curse hasn’t been broken
when you tried to liberate me
from the vicious clutch of misery,
the misery you inflicted on me.
Your promises were sweet,
your kisses were addictive
and your warm embrace
fulfilled my heart’s desire,

yet everything was ephemeral

And I didn’t find my way
to dance freely with your fire,
and your warmth didn’t permeate
through the freezing darkness
instead, I plummeted into an infinite sadness
while you watch me sucked into oblivion
voracious shadow devoured me

the light you offered was temporal

You left me exposed
with all these imperfections
and you used to taunt me with indignation,
and as I tumbled onto the raging tempest,
your voice echoes haunting me
you laugh, you revel in my loss
but you didn’t know I rejoice
upon my emancipation from you

I swim eagerly into the abyss of liberation.
