Romance The Trance

by Painted Persona   Jul 10, 2008

Cancerous images bloom in the mind
Take this knife and cut the throat
Sever the nerves;
Slash the need for love...
...Cut deeper.

Still not bleeding enough.

The white canvas below catches strands
Desired beauty killed,
Taste the blood from outlined lips
Sever the tongue;
Mutilate the cryptic words...
...Cut cleaner.

Still not screaming enough.

Mesmerized by a thousand dancing angels
Peel the lids from ignorant eyes
See not the lies on the spine
Sever the spell;
Stab the need for peace...
...Cut deeper.

Still not holy enough.

    A real dark poem indeed. Well expressed anguish, in poetic language. Hopefully, a brighter side of life will remove the hurt some day. 5/5
