This poem is a tribute to Shakespeare's "Macbeth"

 "Death by Guilt" 

I'm bleeding through my ears and trembling in my bones. Alack! I am afraid, they have awaken. My heart is pounding and I am proceeding from the heat oppressed brain. Shaking, sweating, and blood has become my world. Everywhere I turn, all I hear is the whispering of "Fair is foul and foul is fair." I am treading on cold, thin, ice. I hear the owls scream and the crickets cry. I scream and cry as well, but you don't hear because my lips are sealed. For when I am in a deep sleep, my conscience calls me out, shouting, "Sleep no more!" My hands will never be clean and my name is slain. I am afraid to think what I have done. There is no heaven for me, only hell. Walls close in around me, falling is natural now. So I hear it again, the whisper, "Fair is foul and foul is fair."
