grace grotesquely crumbles

your grace
crumbles
into grotesque flakes
as your fingertips slash
my tender silken face
with rage and vengence

steeped
in self-loathing
you infect me -
impale my gauzy soul
on your poisoned barbs:
hatred and lusty greed

once, i loved you -
worshipped you, adored you
and darkness
eviscerated my heart
as i watched my adoration stream past
your inert, stoney heart

my trembling eyes splinter
into a thousand tears
when i look upon your face -
my reflection -
in the looking glass
you ... you ... you ... always ... you

this dark riverbed of adoration
that flowed in my viscera for you
has dried up; my heart --
which once glistened sublimely inside yours,
now lies in eternal anguish:
dessicated, petrified, searingly denuded

your grace crumbles
into grotesque flakes
of grief, rage and greed
soaked in the brine of remorse
you beg, like i did, for morsel of mercy
i will starve you of forgiveness

"I will starve you of forgiveness..."

I almost wept-
It hurt to read those words...made me wonder "who".

Shhhh- Don't tell. I know who I want it to be- and that is enough, isn't it?

Friend- I hope you are well. You are in my thoughts~
