Rending my cloak in grief

My grieving cloak
I rent
You poisoned my mind
Toxic rending of my flesh
Oh you play with my heart
oh you do
But you could never comprehend
How I loved
I never ever said we'd end
I saw a future together
Forever til I died
But you saw that
As weakness
As an invitation
To send
messages across the world
Offering my hopes
Up for barter
And the world replied
With its destruction in kind
Because that is what it does
Offering to help with my suicide
I descended into madness
From a place
I had only reached
By ascent in love
So where am I
How am I to live
This end
I cannot transcend
The sorrow
To exist
