Damaged by Crimson Quintessence

I looked at you many times before

Trying to figure out what they saw

Luring them in like a starving child

Then stripping their soul’s completely raw.

Deep inside, that gut instinct kept sending out warnings.

Oh, how I tried to ignore it.

I fought it with everything I had

Thinking I could fix you

Wanting to be the one so bad.

I should’ve known when she warned me

But I couldn’t, I didn’t want to believe you could be that cruel.

And, you convinced me, it was her, she was damaged, not you.

You presented as educated, caring and soulful.

I bought into that, I was so thoughtful,

We all did, how awful.

But, when push came to shove with time

You revealed yourself, the manipulator, the whore and the unkind.

Living for you was a chore.

Red pill or blue, they both kept you unglued

Pushed you back into your corner.

Poor damaged shoul, your heart is so cold

You’ll latch onto anything if I’m being so bold.

Swallow it down, shoot it straight up

Either way, it fucked you right up.

Have you got a first aid kit?

Do you know what to do to fix it?

You left us all damaged

You checked out, you never check in

You sat there staring, rubbing your chin

Fix it, fix it

Apologetically, you cried, you begged,

Please, have patience with me, I’m trying, you said.

But all you managed was to leave us all crying

Feeling sorry for you as you kept coming unglued.

Red pill then blue, we should have all seen it

But, then again, you didn’t really mean it.

Damaged, you were, but you just couldn’t see it.

I dropped a rose on your coffin

You’re gone and I can’t even feel it.

Welcome to the Rivers of Grue. My name is Richard Charles Stevens, Keeper of the Crimson Quill, and this is my immortal legacy. In honour of the fallen, from the deepest essence of an English gentleman with the heart of a lion, soul of a poet, and eyes for only truth. While the subject matters herein may be dark, there exists always a light source. Providing voice to the voiceless until I breathe my very last.
