Metamorphisis

I am the rotting blood in your mouth.
Sweet and acrid,
beautifully invading your senses.
Heavy, boldly fragranced and satisfying

I am obsession personified
Marking and forever lasting

I am the knife that carves love declarations on your skin
Leaving scars who will never fade.

I am the trauma that will mold you forever.
Gashed and stained pages in your bible
Open wounds pour your insides on the hot cement
The heat instantly evaporating at touch.

I am fear that swims in the pools of your memory
With playful tentacles that lambently pet and tangle in your eyes
utter terror that consumes your breath.

The lighter that ignites cherry bombs and bottle rockets,
that violently explode in your palms.
Mauling and mutilating your precious matter.
Ending your life in flamboyant pompous pain.

Metamorphisis
