They Slew Me

They Slew Me

They tore out my heart,

These demons of discord and malice.
They feasted on it,

Those demons of hatred and spite.
I had no chance,

Not a prayer,

I didn’t even resist.
And this life it keeps going,

And I can never stop it.

One more day,

I live to rue my existence.
I can’t deny,

I’ve had a hand in my own demise.
It’s so unfair,

I was so young.
Despite even that and my innocence,

They slew me anyway.
So lays my slain body,

Fallen to the ground.
