Hourglass ticks endlessly,
Mocking the seconds till the end,
Veins burst forward,
Welcoming the beast, monster,
Death nourishment splendid,
Down the portal of my center,
Strengthening, fueling, encroaching,
My will to prey,

Innocent stars burning my eyes,
Tearing at the black box,
Hidden behind hate, deeply locked,
In broken crevices,
Of my twisted mind,

Liquid life, pure perfection,
Drained from the column of your virgin neck,
Objects of evil pierced through delicate shell,
Hidden behind a grin,
Menacing, inviting,
Picture of an angel, black wings unfurl,
Death daggers declared,
Shattering the godly image,
Disrupting the peace,
You once breathed before
