It burns and sizzles This potion you infuse It chars my veins All that runs through them Is a clammy, creepy venom Shooting up my starved brain Conjuring images of disdain Bringing to life all my fears; I crumble as black fumes Encased in gloomy thoughts
In the torture chamber Surrounded by nerves, veins Flesh, blood, encased in bones I shudder at the merciless Incantation, the endless Curses whispered through Sinewy walls, deafening me I stand captured in the maze Of all my infernal thoughts So deep, dark and vengeful!
Coiled within a serpentine fear Slowly coming to life Powered by venomous anxiety Poised to strike Restless under my clammy skin I lament the loss Of kindness, integrity, liberty In this dark strife That has led our worlds astray With poisoned words
Sapphire figments of fantasy Dark as the indigo velvet night Embedded in slivers of argent light Lying on my bosom like ashen fire Ebb and flow of each breath Heave and sigh of the chest Life moving in glossy rhythms Of soulful music from the depth
Did the strings break Or the melody die out Were they so complex The words and the sounds? Composing emotions Did you fall into the trap Of raking up memories Kept under a wrap? Now here’s a whimper There a mad laughter Grief from the past Rises in dark spectre!
