R

 A rose with petals of titanium
 
Her bloody thorns tiny daggers
ripped my flesh, elevated me
 
I kneel, and know she is my love



COMPETITION PIECE: Doppelganger: the DUP Oscars. I wrote this for Delanee, She has a razor sharp terse verse that takes my breath away.

                                   May I finally stop waking
                                   May I finally stop healing
           Let my wrists be painted red, my face colored white
                                                And embrace
                                                 My afterlife.

Pain
i give to others
for i fear to face
my own
in a world
where the children

Are The Prey

screaming scars


still bleeding
in need of healing
oozing yet again

devil's lick
they begin to split
these scars still scream

Myself

  
I plunged the knife
To end this life
This ever failing health  
Behind closed doors and with stealth  
I sacrifice myself

Pull

At the end of the road,
You’ve lost your strength and vigor,
Are you tough enough?
Do you have the guts to pull the trigger?

Dark black and oozing
from my screams,
coagulated passion
writhes, tormented,
convoluting itself in order
to be read, emerging
trailing it's renderings.
