Twisted and reptilian, ugliness poisoning me from the inside out,
I burn on a pyre of passionate hatred; raped by a desire for blood-drenched revenge.
My heart is an archive of insults and sins that you've poured unto my
Skin 'til the scars weep as hard as my eyes.
Daggers and sticks, a game of bullets and stones, and flesh and bone,
Verbal venom stains my skin, a cancerous coating of things that are best
The jewels of death glitter soft and
Poisonous on broken fingers, brittle nails and defensive wounds,
A rainfall of shattered secrets, memories with forked and bleeding
Tongues, a sparkle of fangs, the darkness devours all.
My dreams are empty, a hospital bed stripped down to its metal frame,
Where's hope? she died alone,
I walk life's cemetery without her, my guardian angel slowly fading,
Wings scabbed and tattered, raven black gives way to grey,
I'll cheat myself for one more day.
