Bleed

  • Beams of fire sweep through my head
    Thrusts of pain increasingly engaged
    Sensory receptors succumb
    I am no one now, agony

    My crimson liquid so frantically spilled
    The ruby fluid of life unleashed

    Ripples ascend to the surface of my eyes
    Their red pens drawing at random, at will
    A myriad pains begotten in their wake
    The bastard spawn of a mutinous self

    The regurgitation of my micro nemesis
    Salivating red at the prospect of my ruin, my doom

    Malfunction the means for its ascent
    Bloodletting the stringent voice to beckon my soul
    So futile any resisting tension
    As death-induced mechanics propel its growth

    The implement, the device of my extinction
    The terminating clockwork of my gleeful bane
    The definitive scourge of its mockery
    The end-art instruments lethality attained

    Heed, it commands, heed my will
    Bleed, it says, bleed you will

    Falling into the clarity of undoing
    Scornful gods haggle for my soul
    Minds eye flickers and delegates as I let go
    Taunting whispers accompany my deletion

    A sneering grin, the voice of my reaper
    Chanting softly the song of depletion
