Rating: 3.1

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,

I am told that in war that sometimes the most conflicted and dark individuals engage in heroic sacrifices just like this character does. Powerful.

The poet's suicidal stance has it's ground as he contemplates to kill himself in different ways. Finally he surrenders his freedom and will upon the feet of almighty God. A great poem with fathomless philosophocal depth.
