End

I’m comforting my demon

I made him growl last night

We hurt each other for no particular reason

As thick as thieves, an honourable knight

His black blood on those rusty chains

Why do I sympathize, why do I stay

My hopes seem dead, a thought remains

I feel him licking my breath every subtle day

My third self, a loathed artefact

My brain is old a decaying fossil

Yet he is my bind in all his acts

Benevolent  he keeps his teeth behind a muzzle

Manipulation is key in our relation

There’s a game for two, I hide he seeks

Be warned a devil labyrinth is quite the sensation

I feel his claws damned as a freak

Crawling up my spine, a fetish abuse

He lived, he lived for the life in reverse

So I find myself asking if running is of good use

What conjures such monsters, such vile a curse

Why does he love me so, in my head he resides

Severed emotions, what a selfless deed

He bows before me but I’m the one to abide

Carcass inside me, the black raven feeds.

Cracks

We find ourselves in conquest

Half measures curse the subject

Just crude enough to waver

You only relish moments we savour

Human strength from her pure core

Signals of truths , we hide we abhor

The predator is ready, punctual and  agile

Prey before the maker, prey becomes fragile

Languishing at the mercy of all you others

Take back your throne the morals of our mother’s

Everything I spoke, you let it speak

Now that I’m here my success suddenly reeks

I  hold a person to find them brittle

Their minds are ticking suitable and fickle

Your bones your china I held with care

To find another person, the beginning finds you rare

How many more people are there in a person

How less a blessing is the next lesson

Sharing vain lives is a means to an end

Quick decline, the life you are in haste to lend
