My dire diary

By Melancholic VIncent

Enough of all the care

The dear confidence

Spare me the condolescence

The dices have been thrown

The tables have been turned

I lost so much

Too much that i could afford

I drew lots, but i was a lousy looter

I threw my life on the knife trade

All the game, and all the greed

Made me on my tracks

All the game, and all the greed

Made my own life at stake

I kept playing cards

Randomly, helplessly

Just to cover all the debts

Just to raise all the debris

But the jinx around my neck

Was getting thicker

Was getting tighten

I had no escape

It was all in the table

For the taking


My heart, naked, raped

Shown off to all

Taking their share of the pride

My past, naked truth

Found out by all

Taking their chance now to strike


With every step i take

There’s a trap

Wide opened jaws

With sharp teeth

In every place i go

There’s a set up

World’s conspiracy

Withdrawal denied

Behind any corner

There’s a shadow

Wisely hidden in the dark

Wickedly awaits for the prey


Every letter, every page

Delievered only to you

Directly written for you

Were a vainly, verily fatal defeat

Were a vanquished, vertigo feeling density

All the secrecy i carefully shared

That you shouldn’t never speak

And the mistery i successfully solved

That you should forever keep

The truth thought to be confined

The trust stained by an injury

Believing never more

Because of your lack of reason

Betraying no more

Because of your act of treason


For the dearest of all my foes

And the direst of all my friends

    Thank you for the comment. This one is about the things and people that i lost yes, but it's more grief about life, the ones that couldn't understand me therefore caused damage that not even they know.
