Beast Of Affection


The gulp of fear down my throat
The grasp of spikes in my hand
I'm a sinking ship with no means to keep this boat afloat
Obliged to sensibly save one was nothing grand
Yet the failure to do so spewed me with loathe
A poorly engineered plan, loathe and dark nights dont blend

Crack crack to the floor my broken heart fell
Oozing blood my eyes couldnt bare to swell
Heaving to release pain
With a prolonged hiss
I knew I was near the boil

Throb oh little heart
Throb oh little heart
Although the claws left a mark
Me moving on is the greatest mark
They say those that sink will never arise
Yet look at my member that pumps blood
It has risen
I'm feeling the beat in my veins
It embarks on a journey to banish sorrows
Throb oh little heart
Throb oh little heart
The best is yet to come

Mind you
I was foolish and I believed you
You engulfed my sensibility
I used to be the morning dew
And you stripped my heart of its credibility

Today, tomorrow, I am forever picking up the only piece thats is left
To my humanitt you committed theft
I try to smile but I cant
For fooling me was all you meant

I scream a song of red tears
Happy and normal I cant be like my peers
For it took all but me not atleast
The contagious beverage transmitted through fears
As my doom nears
A valiant soldier I am to curse the Beast
It invadedd my being and had a huge feast
Knowing no one, knowing nothing
All I knewa was I was left in the midst
If it was in human form
I wouldnt hesitate to use my feast

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Dickinson

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
