Vivid images fill a mind
Bloodlust cravings
Take control of a body
Oh so willing
Beneath the touch
Of a steely blade
Twist it
Turn it
Within this flesh
For words
They are the mind's knife
Cutting so deeply
And bloodless wounds
Bleed profusely
Salty and metallic
Oh so sweet upon the tongue
To wash away the unseen pain
From this body so frail
Drifting upon a sea of hurt
Set the mind free
Of this rotting flesh
The stench is overwhelming
As bloodless wounds fester
While maggots feast
Upon this tasty morsel
Of putrid life

This one is powerful -- I am just looking through to see what others you got here now. I reviewed one of your others, so I thought I would drop one of this one.

Very precise use of words. I love this and it is so true. Janet
