A very angry moment in my past, dredged up from the vault as the reasons for keeping it to myself fade.

so much blood
on the ground
rancid mud
flies abound
like the minions of Beelzebub
divisions swarming broken stubs of
arms
meant to hold
not to harm
but unfold
rhythmic couplets of the kept
but the gauntlet has been swept across my face


hot and twisted
brow is misted
and my eyes are black as coal
fooled again
and the pain has pushed my
bottom teeth out to an underbite
you creep the night
but man the cruel cold light of day is coming


chill
meant to kill
nothing more
just the score
of a game you tried to play with Nature
stab the love and steal the pleasure
but frost
like the heat
is a force
you are meat
'cause that's all you ever wanted from me
a little slice of ego victory
now
you presume
you can squeeze
in some room
what a sleaze
on your knees
trying to be
tough like me
but you ain't
got the paint
in your pallet
cause you're dull
as a mallot
suck the words
pneumonic curds
but you lack
creativity
you're just a hack
ride the backs
of your betters
even of the mediocre
now i chuckle
as you buckle
blaming sin
sliced at the shins
make a demon
of your semen
f**k the lust
it was trust
that you broke
like a joke
now you're gagged
shredded rag
of the past
when the last
foolish friend thought you had some balls
but you've nothing
but the gall
to be something of a creep
but not a peep
about the things that you supposedly stood for
nothing more
than the ghost
of the whore
that you boast
was the you
but was
(nothing)

Gripping write. I felt the struggle of good and evil in this one. Truly epic. Well done.
