You are the poison that burns in my veins,

eroding the thoughts that keep me sane.

You are the fingers that claw at my soul

destroying me, their ultimate goal.

You are the storm on a clear sunny day

shrugging your shoulders in that shallow way.

You are the darkness that feeds my fears

that blood thirsty hatred is always near.

You are the shatter that blinded my eyes

you are the reason I no longer cry.

You are the tears caught in my throat

and you are the love I am so devote.
