Lamentation For Susan

I lament for Susan for her heart has gone astray
She invested in fool’s gold and is now bankrupt today
Her eyes and soul were touched by what seemed to be the real thing
But now broken and battered can no longer use her God given wings
So much potential so much grave and love to give
Now crippled for life she sometimes looses the desire to live
Vision now blurry from the rivers of cold tears
Heart shivering from the oppression of her fears
Mind confused to perceive what is truth and what is a lie
Her emotions grow to stone her will begins to die
A bottle a joint ice cream or more her only release
Though none can fill the void or yield any peace
A friend’s voice can temporarily invoke a smile
But only for a brief moment then returns that pain so vile
There is no sun in her world just ice and cold
Where once was spring time has turned brittle and old
Every breath tortures her bleeding heart to beat
Every memento only a painful reminder of her deceit
Nightmares whether fast asleep or wide-awake
Each pulse of life causes her heart to break
I lament for Susan for her pain is the demon’s muse
I will pray for her and give her a magnifying glass to use
