Searing words haunt,
Cowering in your blistering heat,
Numbing pain flashes,
Remembering your presence,
Black despondency unsheathes his sword,
Blade of hostility and treachery,
Gravitating towards my fragile heart,
Slashing the blood sodden barrier,
Piercing hallowed orbs,
Ripping into my essence,

Dark wanderer, hell within light,
Prowling as birds chip,
Wind whipped, black sky screech,
Preying on the pure, chill of her warmth,
Sinning onyx altering cherry eyes,
Ivory clothe disintegrating,
Reverting to nothing,
White angel, no longer

Clenched fists, darkness infesting
Calling forth sins of the soul,
Imploring whisper of tongue,
Loathing, dripping, encircling,
Markings brand your wrist,
Ink seeping into veins,
Evil has slaughtered this heart,
Crimson flowing innocently,
Life ceasing with its last beat

Everlasting Torment 1/7/11
