Freshman - 1,399 Points (Pudsey, Leeds)

The Council And The Devil

They are like poisonous snakes
that never stop biting
etching their venom
deep within your soul

I feel crystallized tears
of my mothers past
like jagged edges
tearing through my flesh

It's like a never ending
time machine going back
to where it all began
like your trapped in the same day
over and over again

    A Wonderful poem with in-depth meaning. Beautiful lines...
