Narcissistic Cannibal

Narcissistic Cannibal

A Poem by Felicity's Eve
"

After all you've done to hurt me both inside and out... I hope you're happy. Based off of Korn's song "Narcissistic Cannibal". Check out Author's Note.

Korn 

"Narcissistic Cannibal"

(feat. Skrillex & Kill The Noise) 


"Don't wanna be sly and defile you

Desecrate my mind and rely on you

I just wanna break this crown

But it's hard when I'm so run down"


I'm battered and bruised

Exhausted; defeated 

But you can't see this 

You can't see anything beyond your poisonous "superiority"


"And you're so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal!

Got to bring myself back from the dead!"


HOW?!

WHY?!

How could you be so selfish as my heart bleeds?!

Why does hurting me bring you such sick pleasure?!


I'm dying every second...


"Sometimes, I hate, the life, I made

Everything's wrong every time

Pushing on I can't escape

Everything that comes my way

Is haunting me taking its sweet time"


Why didn't I run or fight?

Why is everything falling apart?

I struggle onwards, screaming in pain, but you don't care

You're voice haunts me; I will always be nothing... 


"Holding on I'm lost in a haze

Fighting life to the end of my days..."


I'm trapped inside my mind

Everyday is a blur as I fight a battle no one can see


"Don't wanna be rude but I have to

Nothing's good about the hell you put me through

I just need to look around

See that life that has come unbound"


I don't care what you think

I'm done being a silent good little girl

Look all around you at this damage!

Is that empty bottle worth this hell you've heartlessly dragged me through?


"And you're so cynical, Narcissistic Cannibal

Got to bring myself back from the dead"


Sick and utterly selfish 

You've destroyed my heart. 

You've let your demons consume me. 

I'm grasping blindly to find my will...


"Sometimes, I hate, the life I made

Everything's wrong every time

Pushing on I can't escape

Everything that comes my way

Is haunting me taking its sweet time"


Tick-tock...

Tick-tock...

Let me go...

Just let me go...


"Holding on I'm lost in a haze

Fighting life to the end of my days..."

You drop this dark poem into an even darker abyss of endless hate and frustration just at this line. I love how you combined the lyrics of the song with your poem. The fusion is wonderful that is to say your arrangement how it blends it. The words seem to creep into your soul. Fantastic!
Did you do the picture?
I feel bad for your dad. I'm hoping that some day things would lighten up for you and they'd be better.

the sad thing about Narcissism is that the poor b*****d is so self absorbed he doesn't even notice he is eating you alive.. a powerful piece.. I haven't listened to the music yet.. I can't wait..

Lyrics are there to be used, to wrap or accuse and oh my, how you've accused and rightfully so.

Seems those words scream and shout at your very spirit... and yet, i find great co

Wow!
Very well written and it touched me,
Can I just say though, you have potential!
My favorite part was, "Sick and utterly selfish
You've destroyed my heart.
You've let your demons consume me.
I'm grasping blindly to find my will..."
Please continue to write and read!
Can you by chance look at my story The Blonde Girl, It would really mean a lot to me.

A powerful write. Some find pleasure in inflicting pain on others. Bravo.....

I love the way you wrote this using the song to tell your story too. I love the way you were able to make something so dark and heartrending even more emotional and even more painful to read. Well not necessarily painful but rather we can understand what it is youre saying and get put into the scene.

I too find inspiration in song and you have here. The songs often speak to our hearts and minds but maybe not in our own language. I enjoyed the translation ( : O )

I like what you've done here, but your poem can certainly stand on its own...raw emotion packs a wallop.
