Poetry

Your light seeps through me

Engulfing me in its flame of melancholy

Calling for me to be at its side

I rush in haste

“Drink me” it drawls, fueling my reverie

Your repertoire of temptation emits boredom.

My eyes bleed as I tear my gaze away

Would a monster’s touch sully you?

Poison wrapped in sugar

The sun takes lay among the hills

Hate burns across my chest

One – just one

Would ensure sweet release

Death

Pain

Silence

It trickles, coils, kills-

Humanity

Sanity

Jaded, my limbs seek refuge

Your retreat follows

A game of cat and mouse I cannot shake
