Captain Savior (Curiosity)


Photo taken from the WEB


He beats her with emotional jabs,

Sets her up with the charming left,

Then the dashing right comes promptly after.

He punctures her gentle soul with splinters,

Slowing sucking away her grace.

She is blinded by youthful love,

Unable to register the truth.

Time after time again

She is made out to be the fool,

Oblivious to all his goddamn lies.

His infidelities tear her to shreds,

Crumbling a once pure-hearted woman

To her freshly scabbed knees.

It is my job

To restore faith upon her soul.

It is my job

To give life to her waning trust.

My job is to pull the wool from her eyes

And force her to accept the truth.

My job is to wipe away the salty tears

And blow hope upon the scars left behind

From the emotional jabs of past love.
