"You used to captivate me by your resonating light, now I'm bound by the life you left behind, your face it haunts my once pleasant dreams, your voice it chased away, all the sanity in me..." Evanescence "My Immortal"
Your tongue lashed out from between your razor teeth,
To latch itself into my sunlit mind & filling it with your venom,
Sending me into scatter-brained shock,
& my heart fell from it's hole in my chest to shatter onto the floor,
I stared at you with empty aquamarine irises,
The whites of my eyes laced with crimson spiderwebs and soaking tears,
Where there was once blaring silence, there is now your shrill screaming voice,
You are screaming at me again,
Then it happens, so quickly that the only thing I see is flesh, white flesh stretched taut over solid knuckle as the back of your hand meets with the side of my face,
My body bends with the will of your force, sideways, as I land face first on the ground,
Angered, I fly upward in pure, white hot momentum and plant my fist in the socket of your eye,
We meld into one violent, bloody creature, all hands and feet flying sideways and downward,
Teeth gnashing, hair pulled, fists landing in jaws, ribcages, nails scratching at throats,
A voice in the back of my head screams "More, give me more!"
We are wild dogs, mad animalistic, rage-filled beasts with only beautiful bloodshed in mind,
& this continues on until morning,
& then, when the sun rises and we have simmered down into nothingness you lean to me and say "I'll love you forever," and in my sickness I know that it's true
