Crystal Death

Crystal Death

A Poem by Kate Henderson

Force the diamonds from my eyes 
Bleed the rubies from my brain
Tease the skin 
Taut and rigid 
Paper doll 
So light and frigid
Massacre of my heart 
Each beat an unending nightmare 
Peel back my nails 
Let my veins show their colours 
Mix my sapphires with your cold hands 
It's like building castles in the sand 
Times hourglass stands still 
As you awaken the demon locked in 
I sit and stare as the 
Iron drips from my eyes 
Emeralds pulled from 
The circle of disguise 
Masquerading for the ball 
As you turn to elegantly fall 
Keep your amethyst amaranth 
For all pleasure is mine 
Drink my blood 
As a Vampire would 
Does it taste like wine?

Dark, creepy and evil, I love it!!! May the Pandora's box of your work and the power of your pen infest the motal realm with the flavor of your interpretation of darkness
