Razor

To touch me is to bleed.

I will leave my marks all over your soul, for your body means nothing to me.

I am a razor.

I’ve been sharpened by your appetite. The destruction I inflict has no bearing to me, for a weapon has no emotions. Just a purpose. To serve in your cause of self-destruction.

You’ve conjured up all the demons, thinking they would eat me, and you forgot that I am their father.

How soon you forget.

I tried to warn you, I even gave you a head start but you were so caught up in the maelstrom that you didn’t listen. But you never did anyway.

I stomped up and down because treading lightly just does not get your attention.

The lights of the Ferris wheel are off, but it still runs, and I thought I would take you for a ride, but you had a roadmap and I but a notion. No wonder you lost me again.

I am resurrected now. Don’t mind the wounds; it’s the price of going through your grind. They will heal in time, just as long as you don’t lick them.

I am the Vampire who wanted to taste your blood, so you injected it with poison..

I am the parasite that needs to feed off of you to live, only to find you but a shell of who you seem to be.

I am the Zombie that reminds you that you are still alive. God knows you never remember.

You will not survive my love, for my kisses burn your velvety skin like acid, leaving scars that remind you that the past was real.

There will be no illusions between us, as I take you for a dive into the sun, and hold you tightly as we burn together as we fall. You make a wish as I whisper in your ear that you were always my shining star.

It won’t last long, but to shine there with you, even for a minute, is worth a million times the certain death that comes afterwards.

    Man that was like siiiiiick, in a good way. did you really write that yourself Sandmonkey? Wow even your dark side shines, I ‘m jealous man! Nice piece, I like the part about the part in the sun cuz it relates to Egypt big time, and the burning together, thats where you gave a clue that it involves female agitation, if I am not mistaken. Best of luck dude with your problems, remember if you can deal with them then you don’t have them and the ONLY thing that anyone can really control is their state of mind!

    That was a sickkkkkkkkk piece man, I mean that ofcourse in a good way. Even your dark side comes off as sounding nice. I liked the part about the Sun that is so reminiscent of Egypt plus how you left a hint with “burn together” that it is a female constituent causing the irritant to your sanity, if I am not mistaken. Just remember if you can solve your problems then you never had them and the only thing that you can control 100% is your frame of mind. Good luck with all your problems.

    Lovely of course. Still I wonder…do u ever think there must be a simpler way to live.

    Do u ever envy the every day Everyday Egyptian man whose life is basic: work, eat, sleep, drink, fuck…

    No complicated thoughts to cause such angst…

    No complicated thoughts to produce such poetry…

    Still someday I would love 2 read what u sound like when u r happy and not so conflicted..
