The Darker Side Of Him (2005) - Poem by David Joel Rodriguez

This is you blaming the world
These people you would love to prune
Destroy the creator of organisms

There is no one you know I have told
I was the one there when you were ruined
I put you inside my deranged prison

No! you will not leave here.
My blood is all you have for food
If you try to leave, I'll breathe you in

What is the right word for your fear?
What will you do, now that you are screwed?
Ever felt you were alone wondering where you've been...?

If I break you, would you reveal the real me?
If I whisper my pain, would you contemplate my truth?
I have realized now this feel of intrusion!

There is no way you will be set free.
What part of my life will I begin to seduce?
In which way will it be the motion?

I have not yet thought the words to start the suffering
It will be slow in an unspeakable process
The acid will drip off your pale skin.

Your liquid body will be the only thing moving
Remain trapped inside and powerless
You have no idea what I have seen!

Ah! Here is this paintbrush with someone's hair
Dip it in the solution drawing on your helpless corpse
Scream all you want, no one can recognize your voice

Let me brush around your eyes and remove the pair
Just like a canvas I begin to recall this mess
What was that you said? Did you make a noise?

Please let me finish my art, it'll feel nice in the end
Takes a while, but a mirror is all that I have
Yes, I know, it burns, but it's a nice burn.

Soon you will forget what I have done; you will mend
The tears are salty, so you have the help on my behalf
I am beginning to feel you're in no interest to learn.

If I say something, you will hear it!
If I do something, you will do it!
If it is pain I endure, you WILL feel it!
