Sins of Skin

The ghosts of our sins are haunting again
Leading us on and pulling us in
Promising pleasures intended to maim
Feeding our flesh slices of shame    
                
Bleeding out secrets laden with guilt
Inflicting atonement for all the blood spilt
Scars hidden on canvas adorn and reveal
Exposing our truth through lies of steel      
     
Condemned by desires so dark and unspoken
Salvation delivered albeit a token    
Martyrs of suffering crucified in silence
Eternally marking our bodies with violence  
 
Expressions of rage fade into rapture
Confessions of crimson ensuring our capture
Sadists of selves we’ll show no repentance
Slaves to the blade our skin is our sentence
