An outstretched hand.

A silver knife.

An open stove.

A broken home.

Vicious words that

cut too deep.

Arterial poison

staining these pages

like life; like lust.

A wish for oblivion,

a second chance,

redemption, reincarnation.

Sin at it's finest.

Purity and whores that

love you.

No answers in the book,

and no wonders in the world.

Corrupt and malleable.

Can't follow when led,

but a bridge is such a

simple leap.

Cells that rebel against their

master;

a life that refuses to

end.
