Failed the test

I have no words
to give to you
they were crushed
as is the leaf
my voice
an emptiness of sound
no longer
can it speak

I have no heart
to offer you
it's buried deep
within the snow
like the flower
your foot
crushed it deep below
ground it into
the dirt
it was a deathly blow

Your love
a stone
you hung heavy
a yoke upon my neck
in silent pain
it bruises upon my breast
my body bears its weight
unable to be free
unable now to rest
caught up in the pain of love
I failed somehow
to pass the test...
