Dear, sweet blade, shining beneath
The light so lovely. Come hither,
Lay within mine hand so that I might
Feel the coldness of thy touch against
Dear, sweet blade, smiling back at me
With a glint of passion that calls out
Mine name. Make love to this flesh
That encases mine soul, bring forth
Fresh rivulets of red that will pool
Upon the floor.
Dear, sweet blade, plunge into me,
Deeply, like a man to a woman. Let
Me feel thy steel inching into mine skin
So swiftly. Sharp is thee! Ease into
Me, let me bleed so that I might live
To see some other life, beyond this
Hell I know now.
My time here is done, over, no longer
Can I be. There is nothing left of
What I once was, just this empty
Shell that’s grown hideous with decay.
