Kind words whispered in my ear,
Consuming burden of these chains,
Let me fall asleep in here,
Forgotten in this empty pain.

My body’s being ripped apart
And the pain’s too much to bear!
I’ve lost the warmth of my heart.
I’ve lost myself and you don’t care.

I’m still begging for salvation
And you’re still walking away
While your perfume of red carnations
Remains faded in the air.

I don’t blame you, but my hate
Overwhelms me with disgrace
And even if my soul’s decayed
I must escape this filthy place!

This time I’ve lost myself to grief
And gave my heart to endless darkness.
Despite your prayers and beliefs
You have done nothing to stop this!

Lying numb in this cold prison
The wet air’s hurting my lungs;
My teary eyes see all in crimson —
There's liquid iron on my tongue.

What is this poignant feeling
Dragging me in agony?
Something gross and horrifying:
Tissues grind inside of me!

When I die don’t hold my hand
Singing the hymn of the weak.
I’ve brought my hate to this far end
So when I die just set me free!

People don't realize how difficult and the amount of time a single poem or story takes. I like to write :), and it takes me just as long to write a short story as any kind of artwork does XD. 

Seriously though, the poem here flows and is pretty to read. I think it's cool how it is written. You did a great job on it! ^^

True! And only when I think about how I no longer like how some words fit into that story and I have to rewrite them... coming up with an idea is time-consuming enough, but then you have to put it in words and make it perfect. Sometimes it feels like writing could take more than painting. ^^

Thank you so much! It means a lot. :hug:
