Vanquish

Crush my heart in your hand
Prey upon my broken soul
Shred the remnants of sanity
Until you feel you have control

Whisper to me poisoned words
Sugar coat them with your lies
Steal sweet breath from sighing chest
With the betrayal in your eyes

Stand before me so I may cower
Tell me now of dreams forsaken
Mock the pieces that still remain
Of this person that is so shaken

Why must you come before me now
A tattered heart be but a meager feast
Yet the day will come when courage reigns
I will that day vanquish the beast
