Mocks and teases, brings one to their knees
Licks the face with its fiery tongue
Watched the essence of life evaporate
In the infernal, dreary fog of the mind.
The glazed eyes, the words, the smiles
There hides an emptiness that words cannot define.
Grows, familiarity fades
Hostility proves a truth that the mind abhorred
Tenderness fades in to the distance, the heart
Squeezes and releases, reminding oneself
That it is merely a muscle and can be squished
To a pulp in careless hands.
Liquefaction of the insides
Dry up of tears
Blood rushes out.
