A Chip At A Time

A chip at a time,
That is how it breaks.
No reason, no rhyme,
No vampire stakes.

A word that’s spoken,
Or a frozen glance,
Forgotten token,
Or no one to dance.

A chip at a time,
My love, that is all,
Nothing sublime,
No epic fall.

Chip away slowly,
Time does its best,
They said it’s holy,
It should pass the test.

But slowly it chips
The torment is great.
Bloody it drips,
Surrender to fate.

Love’s the chisel,
Hope’s the hammer,
Feel the pain sizzle,
Hear the clamour.

All will go, I fear,
Nothing left that’s mine,
Fucked in the rear,
A chip at a time.
