The spinal cord was broken by the love around his head.
A dictionary lay on the ground full of words that he’d been fed.
Now empty it left neither party with a word to find to say,
As disillusioned with memories his existence ebbed away,
An image out in space of a girl that he had known,
Was now vacant as departed that vision had upped and flown.
Pledges had been sworn that had stabbed like a knife
The will to live been taken. Killing promises had taken a life!
