DISMEMBERMENT

DISMEMBERMENT

My severed body bleeds from wounds inflicted by your loss; Selfish pride and ignorance forced me to pay the cost. My pockets are now empty, the odds are stacked against me, all words are lost within my mind so I've nothing to defend me. A friend to be yet I won't accept, so I'm left in debt, a cruel concept. My pain has reached a morbid depth as I'm exposed of every secret kept. Lies revealed of truths concealed behind the eyes where skin is peeled. Green irises, born viruses, please tell me now: WHAT IS THIS!? A goodbye kiss? An end to bliss? An eternity of happiness that my selfish ways have chosen to miss?? The bonesaw slices through my flesh as bone fragments are all that's left. A lesson learned, a malicious test...A mastermind of deafening theft. My fingerprints are left to linger upon your own delicate fingers; Fingers that once touched my face and wrapped me in a warm embrace. Your lips I will never again taste, for you left with such a poignant haste...Now sadly I have lost my place and there is no more purpose in my days. As the blood drains from my open wounds I still have visions of me with you...and with each vision my screws come loose, I become erratic and confused. Why did I subject you to the abuse of a heartless coward, a web, a noose? I left your body there to hang in the gallows of my hall of shame. A plaque is made, engraved your name...I've become a monster: So untamed!! A beast, a ghoul, a demon spawn; Upon your heart I preyed upon. I maimed your trust, mangled your love, but no further now will I discuss the grudge, the lust, the thick disgust of the life I chose instead of us. It's over now, or so you say. But I pray that you'll come back one day. Until you do I'll die inside...within a dismembered body, soul and mind...
