The knife was stabbed through

The grate of metal on bone

The white-hot pain following out

The warm flow of oozing blood

Each breath like a stab

The darkness crowding around my vision

Sinking into oblivion

Fighting to stay afloat

The cause is lost


There was brilliance about

The suns cheerful rays

Only the sharp shooting pain

To remind me of my ordeal


The justice was unserved

He was free

Out there somewhere

They came

And left me unrested

Yet again did I sink


Here I stand to condemn

The man who once tried to condemn me

What I say shall seal his fate

I look at him he looks away

Frowning did I state

"He tried to kill me so"


Here I stand upon the edge

And look to the darkness beyond

The man is dead the justice served

The weight of a death

Is heavy to bear

Did he deserve it?

Should I have denied it?

One thing remains

The nightmares, the dull ache


I tried to forgive and forget

He tried to kill and hurt

I took the last step

Down into Hell

To erase my existence on earth
