A quiet world 

Not in my mind 

An ongoing turmoil sold 

Pain caused by you

The deepness of us sewn in 

Stitch marks all up my spine 

Scars so ugly, moving away passers by 

Nails dug into my skin 

Pulling me down, clenching my soul

With emptiness echoing within 

Withering away, little light fixed 

Mixing the chemicals in my brain 

Unable to grow through feeling so strange 

Completely worsened by your face 

A summers day 

Others outside 

I'm led in bed with the devil by my side 

He whispers in my ear

Thoughts traced, memories unwanted 

Having to rehearse spoken pain 

You can touch the water

But don't go in deep

Drowning in their blood won't help release

I can feel you tugging at my waist

Taking me back

Needing me incased

Tasting the words, the sourness of your tone

The hunger and vulnerability in your eyes speaks what we know

The soaked cloth smothering my heart

Pushing me down into a hole

Clawing my way up, let me see light

While your standing there with inflamed, false delight

Hearing me scream, a treat for your ears

Lost, bewitched with each sneer

We're both only tortured by unknown fear

Lock me up, chain me up

Pull out the chords

Rip out the vessels one by one engraved in my heart  

See the blood trickle 

Taste it on your lips 

Pour it down your body

Experience the last seconds of warmth it brings 

Don't stop now 

Remove every organ 

Throw away the remains 

Just as you did with my feelings 

My body will now only go to waste

      One of your better works. A visceral penning that hits the gut.

      Venturing into the macabre! There is however, one quite beautiful line that strikes me with love: "The hunger and vulnerability in your eyes speaks what we know." My heart immediately melts when I see "vulnerability" in another; one of the purest qualities I can imagine - parallels with the beauty of "innocence" ...something that inspires me to protect this person; to love them...
