InkBlood

InkBlood

A Poem by Mercury Mirrors
"

Unfinished.

"

 

Sticky, black ink flows through my veins.
Upon my white wrists, little rivers, tiny streams.
Monstrous beauty leaps through them in ebony strains
Creations not yet born push against my skin, hear their screams!
 
Shall I let them out or keep them forever in a flesh cage?
Should I push out my demonic desires & evil thoughts through a pen?
Or should I keep them from escaping & showing the world their rage.
What if they were to see what I dream, what I write, what would they think then?
 
I can create beauty with these hands; I can bring your nightmares to life.
I can create something ugly, something terrible to fill you to the brim with fright.
I can paint you a picture of horrors, & more. Your mind is the target, my words the knife.
I can penetrate your simple self, I can make you see everything for what it is tonight.
 
My name is InkBlood, because I bleed poetic truth from every pore.
I can show you fantasies beyond your wildest dreams, tainted with gore.
I can take you anywhere just jump into the crisp white parchment sea.
I can bring you enlightenment, just let yourself bleed into me.

A powerful epic you have going here...

Monstrous beauty leaps through them in ebony strains... This is a beautiful albeit OTT phrase

I can penetrate your simple self... this is odd, it is the mind of the offender, the rapist, the psychic vampire

The truth of gore lore...attractive sort of like dirt with bugs for Jimmies on vanilla ice cream...Great start!

The title immediately reminded me of the books "Inkheart, Inkspell etc."

Wonderful imagery. I loved it. It's exactly how I feel when I write my poems, being able to bring my words to life. I absolutely adored the last line. Perfection! :D xxx
