As I struggle to word my unholy thoughts
Of shadowy horror and fiery destruction
My desperate sadness is my consciousness
It bleeds from my skin's every pore
Considering the calamities inhuman to us all
My soul can't be detained until it perishes with me
Might I perhaps bleed the evil out?
Drown it? Poison it? Fall into an eternal, un-awakening slumber?
Else live with the effigy of satisfaction
The decaying emotions of terror and hatred
That pollute my mind's clarity like blood staining water
As I struggle to maintain that desire to hurt
For blood not my own running underneath my fingers
You will die at my steel before you can cease me
May my own demise arrive before the world itself might die.
