Part 2 of 6 in my Untitled Collection

 Tear my soul in two...
for my fear of rejection limits my growth
and all i know to be true
means nothing without you...

My angel, blow me a gentle Kiss of Death
and spare me your ever sweet torture,
as you not only bring me down,
but my heart, my soul, my dreams...

This curse swims in my blood
and all my pain can't surmount
this love you offer me,
like a jewel-lit gift,
your bitter sweet touch leaves me
vague...

blow the dust off of my mind..
the clogs squeak,
-my tears run Red
my blood runs Black
and the bitter taste of the air near your
heart,
fills my soul with an uneasyness
unfelt by my being

`'`'`you're killing the beauty that rests` within,
for your ego can't sleep..
knowing i have a better hand..`'`'`

slay this evil that lurks in my heart,
and rescue the innocence that is trapped there.
Blood is Thick
Tempers are Thin
and my very being has been held
by your knife,
lingering,
like the scent your soul leaves
after your way with me is done...
SHACKLE ME AND LEAVE ME FOR THE SUN
