diamond- Requiem for a Creature (part one of the creature chronicles)

Poetry By: jack diamond

It's about the darker side of love and relationships. The flame draws you in, but fire is meant to burn

They stand in line to play his game

They remember his smile

They all know his name

Then like a predator of hearts

He soon gets to know them

His cruel blackened dark side, he won't soon show them

Ignorance is never bliss

When you play high stakes,

In a game like this

They stand in line to hand him a heart

It won't be long until he tears it apart

But they never see

Their best chance is to flee

He is a puppet master of epic proportion

A charming young vial

Of romantic distortion

Keeping broken hearts,

in a large trophy case

His own is in pieces

A black hole takes its place

Those stupid girls

They should see right through him

They jump in head-first

As if they thought they knew him

His cold selfish antics

Grow ever so old

And I'm here to tell you,

He's glitter

Not gold

Are you stupid, or blind?

Why can't you see?

This cruel heartless asshole,

This creature is me.

This creature's a beast

In a once human frame

A fellow survivor,

A victim of the game

A once merciful judge

Quick with second chances

Round and round in circles

In most dangerous dances

Now a bit colder,

And a lot more singed

Far more defensive

Deranged and unhinged

Oh you poor thing

You're not to blame,

Here's a chip for the table

Come sit…

Play the game

Abandon all hope

Yhe who enter here

The time until you're just like him
