Image for the poem Knock


My body consumed by pain and desire,  
the lines blurred some time ago
My soul full of emptiness,  
and mind marred with scars
Having been in the flames for so long,  
now I would rather burn
I have learned to live in the fire
But not how to extinguish it
Dwelling in the surrounding darkness
Dancing among the shadows and smoke  
With the regrets and disappointments,  
I was wrong so many times,  
my heart is in tatters
It burned me, it devastated and molded
I have all ribs in place but I feel incomplete
How can a soul be so empty  
yet the emptiness fills every crack
There is no place there for what is desired
and the demons still come knocking
I like to drown in fire but I long for the cold  
Its boring in peace
Feeling unclean but I like it
The good made me tired and weary  
I wandered away from the path
do they know the direction  
Out of this new place I find myself
Away from this loneliness and confusion
Come on, take me now
I do not want to run, do it  
I know you want to dominate
Suddenly a knock on the door
Is it the beast from the abyss
It has come so many times in the past
Something sank in my chest
It comes in, covered in blood
What happened to you? I ask as usual
"I killed a vile creature" it answers
Tears in my eyes
Trembling went in the hands
Why so cruel
I do not understand how  
But each time the mourning grows shorter
And it is easier to forget her for a moment
So I wipe off the blood
And I make the tea
