if you look into the darkest soul
does it make you any less
cold
i think not
so i no longer care to glance
impale your own heart
tragic dance
you and it
making testimonies
excuses
apologies
for the way things are
protect your powers that be
for green paper
the patience to kill
i no longer concern myself
with your damn will..
lie to others
this fool has regained sight
you are the reptile
leather bills
suitcase of gold
still means you leave this place
all alone..

of course you know that i've liked all your poetry, but what i liked about this one was the way you wrote. you are so angry in this and it clearly and cleverly comes through. my favorite parts were the beginning where you wrote "impale your own heart" and the end, your sublime "still means that you leave this place alone", really brought the whole thing together. good poem
