I raised you up to the highest peak
Picked you up from the lowest depth
Yet none of it mattered.
The cards mentioned an intangible event
Never did I think it’d be our bond
Set up to die.
Your past behavior should’ve been the sign
For it was clear, our friendship
was all but mine.
At the end, i spared myself
To the spear, pointed at my heart.
The time being, your every move will be
The tides changed as we drove
Our way home.
You now know where I stand
Pointed in the direction
My compass aimed.
Come along or wither away
For this night is long overdue
In a way.
My love for you will never go away
But now my loyalty must remain
So if the day ever arrives, I must walk away.
Her trauma wrote what her future
Poems written out of desperation
For someone to save her.
Atlas, no one heard her cries
In the darkness or at sunrise.
Fearing the wind would whisper
Her secrets to a stranger
Maybe then she would find a savior.
Years grew over her soul
Like a house full of bones.
Her inner sadness trapped inside
To never once show its eyeless mask.
Old enough to understand
What she suffered was more common
Than having a friend.
Long ago, she was i
And I was she.
Now I have come to sense
They all failed me.
If I simply murdered my secrets
You’d be taking steps into the gates of hell
Since behind the many masks I wear
Is a darkness that will never tell.
An abyss formed long ago
When his hands and weight captured
My fragile innocence.
After years of bottling the loath
It is time to let it all go.
So young to believe
Her own family would conceive
Such a monster who only knew deceit.
Finally, a part of me has laid to rest
And forgiveness was the final test.
Dear child of mine
Under the moonlight
I recall the night
Feeling you grow
There was no way to know
Of what was to come.
I dreamt of you sitting by the river
Smiling and laughing
Oh, how every year
I think of you.
I remember the screams
As I saw the blood on my sheets.
This year, you would’ve been five
What wouldn’t I give
Just to have you by my side.
Those months after you died
Were the hardest of my life.
I forever dream of the day
We shall meet again.
The time has come where I must
Forgive myself and let you go.
For you will always be entangled in my soul.
Te amo mi niño querido…
