Run...(by: eddy styx)


go on and run!


don't just stand there,

frozen in place

decked out obscenely,

in velvet and lace.


a knife to your throat

will silence your screams,

and put to an end

all your feminine dreams!


you set out to tease

and tempt the wrong guy,

with teeth like pearls

and short breathy sighs!


your breath comes in gasps

eyes widen in fear

as panic grasps you

my intentions are clear


so die,

go on and die...


it's your turn

to bled out your lust

die, you shall

as all living things must!


I watch your eyes dim,

under pale moonlight

as you leave behind,

and face your last night.


I can't help but envy

what you must be seeing

a monster without pity,

not a human being!


you should thank me

for taking your life,

with your "essence of beauty"

on my bloody knife!
