Poetry from Jerry Langdon

Light skinned man with dark short hair and a white collared shirt seated at an angle.
Jerry Langdon
Three, Two, One......Done

My heart has been dragged, ragged and bruised.
Every drop of its weary blood has been used.
I have wrung it dry and left it out to die and still
It feeds my thirsting brush and starving quill.
My soul has been battered, tattered and sold
Every piece set in stock; paid out in fool's gold.
I have set it out on the world to the point of no return.
Still in everything I do.......... I can see......... I feel it burn.
In giving my heart and soul my mind has left me.
My passion has led me to the point of insanity.
All that I love has gone from peace to war.
I'm left staring in madness at a black door.
No reflection from the depths of the abyss.
Pain and sorrow have become my bliss.
Oh hell, I remember the destruction
The end and rebirth of creation
Three.........two........ one
ONE......it's done.

But A Droplet 

If you could catch my fall
My tears would tell it all.
You might be able to see
Your way through me.
If you could break the surface
You would see secrets I can't confess.
But I am but a droplet
That you will soon forget.
You will never see me blossom
Nor know what I have become.
If you could see beyond the reflection
You would see behind my rejection.
You would know I'm entangled in tears
I've let grow for so many years.
If you could catch my fall
My tears would tell it all.
I am but a droplet 
Wishing it could forget.
