Traitor Within (Prequel to "Wrongful Red Hands")

What good are you to me broken?
Shattered and battered after crossing enemy lines
I hate how fragile you are
A fierce, lioness red but nothing more than a kittens meow
How dare you mislead me!
Your powerful rhythm, drumming against an ivory ribbed cage, sounding of a stampeding force to be reckoned with but somehow easily captured?
Mind over matter but still so willing to play slave to Master

But what good are you to me broken!
Trampled under the feet of careless on lookers
No one will help you when you combust
They won’t even pretend to see you in pieces
Plain and simple; I hate you!
With you I accomplish nothing and you seem to hinder everything

Where was my warning?
And what happened to my say so?
You leapt into his arms so easily
“The heart wants what the heart wants”
I didn’t know they meant literally
You betrayed me and now you sit in silence like you broken is supposed to be okay

What good are you to me in shambles?
Barely able to pucker and bloom
Splattering crimson tears on the inside of this battle worn breast plate
You knew love was a battlefield and yet you approached it like a game
I always set out to protect you and you were supposed to do the same
But no, you swooned when his lie laced lines sped your traitorous beats into samba steps
Now look at you, there’s nothing left

How useful are you desolate?
Awe stricken with melancholy
Tip toeing on the sidelines with the aftermath of your cowardice hanging present in the air
But now you choose silence as if you never cared
I hope you are happy with your guilt stained palms
Red always looked good on you

This actually was a "word vomit" kind of poem. It came out of nowhere and I scrambled to write it down. It's relevant because so many ppl like to blame their heart for things it never did.
