deadly vocation

by: eddy styx

this is mine
the unspeakable...
it is done.
the dark ruby
that was her heart,
hidden behind
an ivory wall
of shallow pulsing breath
lies now exposed
to the ebony miracle
of endless night!
the deep sapphire
of her unseeing eyes
by the glint
of milky whites.
gazing into those orbs
at the reflection
of myself,
grasping the bloody knife
which drips
garnet tears.
you are not
the last
deceitful lying faithless
to be kissed
and set free
by this enraptured blade.
and so I move on
into the shadows,
for justice awaits
its obedient servant...
and I go forth
to fulfill my trusted calling!

    Deep, dark, scary and certainly unnerving, your alter ego is in fine form as is his blade work. Joe
