Panic, flows deep, running beneath cold skin

Eyes, freeze open, as knees meet the floor

 

Slowly, you’re choking, and the air pulls tight

It burns, through your lungs, as you shiver in fright

 

Say now, what’s wrong?

Why so afraid?

 

I’ve only just showed you, the scars that you’ve made

 

Are they not to your liking, now once they’ve healed?

No longer, not bleeding, the flesh which was peeled

 

Do you wish I had sheltered your mind from this pain?

Or rathered I suffered, alone in vain?

 

How selfish you are, my dastardly devil

And cruel to be sure, as you watched me wallow

 

In this filthy mess of a broken cage, you have become fuel for my blackening rage

 

And no matter the words you use to appease

You will never escape the jaws of this beast

 

For it feeds on your each and every strain, and drinks like wine, from the depths of your shame

 

And slowly it grows, stronger and stronger

As it rips through your body in ravenous hunger

 

Tell me now, as I stare in wonder

 

What has, will become, of you…most pitiful monger
