The Lighthouse ( A Picture Challenge )

The Lighthouse ( A Picture Challenge )

The twin beams swung by.
"You are not alone.
You are not alone.
There is hope.
There is life.
There is tomorrow."

Those beams were a lie.

She was gone.

A cancer victim.

His heart was a dried pea
That screamed,
"I quit! I`m done!
Leave me alone!
I`ll never beat again!
I`ll never feel the warmth
Of another`s burning passion.
I`ll never let the strength
Of another lift me up.
How can I?
They`ll just die and
Leave me alone,
A bloodied broken victim
Too damaged to rise again."

Oh, cursed beams,
Remove your gleeful glow
From my sight.

I don`t want hope.

I don`t want my heart to heal.

I don`t want to be revived.

I want the pain

To no longer throb.

I want my heart
To not be pierced
By some light house`s beam
Saying, "Be well, be well."

Oh, for a sling and some rocks
To slay my twin tormentors.
