Poetry Contest

your take on a Motionless In White song

Motionless In White is one of my guilty pleasures. They're are like a mix of Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson with splash of emo metal thrown together and shat from Alice Cooper's ass. So, I want MiW inspired poetry. Aggressive lyrics, tight leather black pants, black hair dye, anorexia, body piercings, shitty tattoos and freshly slashed wrists. As usual, I will supply links for those not familiar.

† † † † † † † †of scorched flesh
† † † † † † † †& achromatic bone

† † † † † † † † † † † † {wholly
† † † † † † † † † † † † †an unholy whore}

† † † † i offer asphodel kisses
† † † † with a forked tongue
† † † † where your never-borns † †

† † † † in salt & spit ~

† † † † † † † † ... & i wear
† † † † † † † † † † nothing
† † † † † † † †but the shades of
† † † † † † † †your deception ...

† † † † † † † † † † † † †rose leaf skinned,
† † † † † † † † † † † † †a leptosome toy
† † † † † † † † † † † † forgotten in the boughs
† † † † † † † † † † † † of a pomegranate tree

† † † † † † † † † † † † † † †on a promised organ

"Time is the enemy
I can't take this pain, there's blood in the drain
And now the urge is growing stronger and I'm going insane
There's a monster in my head it couldn't be any clearer
For I am truly terrified by the man in the mirror"

- MiW

-despoiled

I sneak away sometimes, never too far    
from yesterday, where the smell of dead    
flowers still frolics by rivers edge; I cannot
understand why I crave what's dead and dying
what makes it all seem so alive inside me...

having left once before, the fragrant            
freedom I found while withering away            
piss-drunk, tattooed and shamed, was for            
others to remember, as I have no stake            
in this game of the living; the only        
freshness I seek are the wounds I wear        
like watches, telling me it's time again        
though, I prefer the term:

-despoiled...  


I was asked to join the lady in this fine competition, so she wouldn't feel so alone. Being the gentleman I am with a soft spot for said damsel, I was happy to oblige and ended up liking my poem to boot...

I didn't choose a song, I only wrote from your description. I understand if it doesn't qualify...

Thanks for the inspiration you two. †;)

Now, Slayer awaits...

The Deal

 
weaving dreams
from smoke
trying to grasp
the unattainable  
 
making deals  
with heaven and hell
that my son  
stays in his drug program
shaking the meth habit
 
see I'm a cocaine fiend
he doesn't know it
feeling like a hypocrite
when I say he can be clean
 
I'm bargaining with the devil
i'll lay down my habit
let his soul be free
this I vow before hell's gates
 
tomorrow he goes to his future
the Salvation Army program
I see him a counselor some day
for those who've traversed this path
 
today the devil  
has come candy in hand
I'm sorely tempted
I've made a promise
 
let my son be free
i'll do what it takes
to break these family chains
so here I am inking out my pain
 
instead of powdering my nose
addicted to the power of verse
slipping the noose
 
this is raw feeling being bled here
no refinement just bare thought
walking through the fire
hanging on for dear life
 
weaving dreams  
from smoke
I've claimed what's mine
the deal is done
 
no more coke up my nose
poetry now my vise
 
wisdom my savior
crucified for my sin
 
the winds of fate  
have taken us
to the precipice of freedom
jumping off the cliff
landing head on into sobriety

!RESURRECT!
(inspired by "Reincarnate" - MiW)


Further into the cradle earth,
but getting closer to my birth.

Writhing in agony in place,
going from hell's death gate and back.

Genuflecting before the grace;
my final immaculate fall!

Hear my screams, don't deny me now.
I've no right, at the mercy of.

Fucking the ghost that is myself,
Crucifying all that is left.

Pulling me from the endless womb,
Recalling me back from my tomb!

Born from your Dark to never end,
Unworthy damned to die again!
