Here, my friends, is a message to the heartless evildoer, who takes other's hearts to replace the piece of ice in their chest. Inspired by: Becca Swan's "just another player playing a game"

How can you do this to them?

Lead them in with a worm on a hook

capture them with smooth words

and as they lie there loving you

you rip them apart and feast on the remains.

See the mess you have left behind?

Do you see it?

Or do you not care?

They're slowly dying

from loss of love

because they gave you theirs

asking for none in return when in fact they needed it.


at home she has problems

and at school he's failing.

Can you not see that you have ripped their hearts out?

You are holding it

squeezing it

waiting for them to break because somehow that brings you joy.

Their hearts beat

you are waiting for it to end

for their love to run out.

I can tell

even you can not love yourself

because you will break your own heart.

The heart you do not have.

How are you alive?

Where did you come from?

Did Hell send you back?

Could even Satan himself stand you?

How does it feel to hold their hearts?

Oh right

it brings you joy.

I hope one day you will suffer.

Like her

like him

like them.

Because you deserve it.

You bastard.

You thet their blood run out

you let them die.

Now tell me

how does it feel

to hold a beating heart?
