Disturbs in grave repentance cracking upon the ocean’s rattle, buckling swords like a python’s tongue, madness I billow in the dusk, drysalter’s poison that pierces me in battle a fool’s dance sparred, soon falling as a leaf of willow; the razor edge of fate, wearing bone and caitiff dust in father’s displease, death tantrums veins of the ghost lauded violence in the stains of the abattoir, darkly lust a plea to no heaven, as fingers lie from coquette’s oath; abyssals red—mercy is laughable, the sword kneels a kill unbridled nature swells where poison provides a fray within my body, eclipses against me with pride instilled, yet in this dance abandon I never move father away; from venom enduring in death to silence, brushes toward this redress as violence. © 2021 lucysworks.com All Rights Reserved.
