cold-sharp-metal-addiction

A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

Her skin is like porcelain,
Fair and pale.
A tortured soul.
She is keeping a secret,
A hidden wonder.

Blood dripping down upon her dress,
And splattered across her body.
Her hands gripping tightly upon the handle of an axe.

Bodies,
Sprawled and lifeless,
Cold and pale,
Still and brittle,
Silent and motionless.

She smiles at the memories of the screams,
Screams of terror,
Screams of pain,
Screams as the sharp, cold metal sliced through their limbs. 

Torn from their bodies,
Their flesh,
It heals.
A painful and bloody death.


Could she have done all this?

Did she do this to herself? It stirred an image of self destruction, but there's so many ways to see this?

Great piece. Detailed to the point where your imagination must make up the rest, and the ending is magnificent

I am left wondering how literal this is, and to what is she killing. Her delight in death and pain evokes she and the axe are both "cold metal". Yet in the end she questions if "she" could have done all this.

Overall a good descriptive poem. Comes from a dark place and allows the mind to ponder what has transpired.

This is a mind blowing poem! Awesome dark atmosphere that puts you right next to the girl, enabling you to feel her thoughts. And the end... that end... right when you think you got all the picture... That question just twists it all and leave you with just... wonder. Amazing poem... simply amazing.
