That Place

By A.N. Flores

I heard your words from far away
Shifting the darkness of that place
Your feeble attempts to undo
The pain and hurt you put me through

Too late, too late you aid had come
My life, my heart... were all but numb
Your acts of mercy nothing mean
Leave me, my soul and heart to keep

Your good intentions are to blame
Nothing's different, nothing's changed
No matter what form of healing
I am, right now, dead and unheeding

Thousands of nights and many more days
None of the ache has gone away
Fly off to another heaven
Be gone forever from my presence

Take back the words you meant to heal
This gaping wound it cannot seal
In that frozen dark barren place
That place you set my heart to waste
