Subconsciousness Corrupted - Poem by Mark Crane

Spawned within decaying carcasses of dying flies
Feasting upon the fetid flesh of the obstinate
Lubricious, slithering, sly force ever obdurate
Devouring innocence with poignant, pernicious lies
- Wake up! -
Stare unyielding deep into your fear's decree
Inhale it's reeking breath; feel it's acid etched caress
Foul vitriolic tongue poisoning subconsciousness
Crawl inside the vile depths of it's inane soul; what is it you see?
- Stand up! -
Dare to pierce the horrid monsters blackend heart
Claim emancipation; shed thine corrupted, riddled skin
For the morrow brings with it a new dawn; time to begin
What will thy do with the precious rare gift of a fresh start?
