gold and dust

burned into my mind
how could i forget
it was a horror
torture
a hot room
with flaking wallpaper
and a touch of spattered blood
in each reach of the eye
instruments of hellish nature
ripping and cutting away
and then there was the worst
not a chainsaw
not a blunt knife
nothing really sterotyped now and again
but something that burns
that stays
that does not heal
melted gold
beautiful by the beholder in a clasp
but painful and scarring
in the wounds of the victim
the predator pours it in
hot and piercing
smoke rising
and then the healing will never happen
but the gold and dust will stay
just like it is melded in my brain

gold and dust
