The Destroyer

Written by | Africa, Poetry

How blind I must have been to your cruelty

How deaf I must have been to your lies

You could not stop at shattering the glass encasing my heart

No, you went on to blend the shards into dust

 

Could I have been dumb to such schemes?

Oblivious to such plots?

You had a death warrant which you made me sign myself

You made losing me feel like nature

 

My mission every waking moment was to please you

All I ate, wore, said and did went along perfectly to your script

Even when you showed your ingratitude, hurled your insults,

my response was to try harder

 

Blind I must have been to your cruelty

Deaf I must have been to your lies

For you shattered the glass encasing my heart

and made it a mission to blend the shards to dust
