There is a power to behold.
The control of man.
The ability to destroy, to claim
To unwontedly make their own.
 
To take a life,
And give it too
And shed little blood
Indifferent to the soul.
 
To filth a beauty
For all eternity
An act of love
Consumed in bitters.
When man is gone
Nothing remains
A pain
A reminding ache.
