A corporeal visage rests
Upon your broken soul
Hardened
Chilled by eternity
Blinding fury quieted
Leaving now
Only emptiness....

Raging scarlet soaked
Upon icy skin
The crimson luster surreal
Slowly streaming
Robbing innocent life
Calm yourself
It is only a nightmare....

Bright lights harshly blare
Robotic voices speak
You do not understand
You are closed
Unable to respond
Shackled in steel chains
As freedom is now sacrificed....

Her voice whispers to you
A flutter of moth wings
Tormenting
Wanting you to feel the pain
She felt
By your cruel hand
As one word seals your fate....

The whisper of her
Remains locked within you
As a single needle
Delivers horrid punishment
Your screams fade
As the poison seeps
And revenge is just beginning....

I like the darkness, and the description. Hmm... Torment, could this have to do with being stuck with relatives, or is that just me? Anyways, great piece, Krista.
