Revenge can be taken in many ways, some take action but words will last forever.

Why did you go, why couldn't you stay?

Shut up! I care not what you have to say,

Listen to these words, and listen to them well

I'd rather see you burning in the fires of hell

You always asked for more but you were never prepared to give

Your life is like a grain of salt passing through a sieve

Do not be frightened for I mean you no harm

But the winds have now changed, they are no longer calm

You fool I curse you! And the blood of your house,

I'll lure you to my trap like I would with a mouse

The rage has been building and now it is finally free

It will sweep over this land like the waves in the sea

I'm glad you are gone but I'd prefer you were dead,

but don't be sad for it is you that has lost your head!

I'm impressed. Some are sheerly freaky, but others are powerful. My favorite is "It will sweep over this land like the waves in the sea". Awesome job!
