The Devil Within.
'Torture ReVamped'

Failed at everything I've tried to obtain,
fled enough nightmares to go insane.
So I chase the disappointment with this opiate,
so that I don't end up blowing out my brains.

I end up hurting those who get to close,
walking around in a daze with no pulse
and the more you struggle the deeper you sink
a monster quickly being pushed to the brink.

“In the Darkness of this night.
Tie me up, and tare out my heart
beat me, use me and let it start
cut me and gut me let me know the fear,
understand the irony as I hang like a dead deer.”

If I had listened to these voices in my head,
each and everyone of you would be dead
going postal, a mass extinction
you would even be giving me a reason.
A cancer to life itself you've become a disease
and compared to living among the insane,
hell would be a breeze.

“Your greatest foe will be your own reflection,
your greatest weakness is your own obsession.
Born to sin while finding the devil within.”

Life and death at our finger tips,
where love and hate will never escape your lips.
I tried being what it is you wanted,
but I'll be damned if I'll die polishing my own coffin.

Trapped in a world that has gone insane,
within a society that thrives off your own pain.
How can it possibly get any better?
Are you ready for the triple header.
Step up to the plate, just watch the chaos we create.

“In the distance I can hear the beating of the drums,
the death songs being sung.
How can you possibly think any of this is fun?
Would you be laughing staring down the barrel of a gun?
Will you regret anything you have done?”

With hands of god, we act like children in our head
to weak to stand on our own feet
we believe every lie they spread.
“The deed is done, now I am dead”

You torture yourself everyday,
a masochist to what everyone has to say.
Walking the road of despair
crying about how life just isn’t fair.

“Your greatest foe will be your own reflection,
your greatest weakness is your own obsession.
Born to sin while finding the devil within.”

Author's Notes/Comments: 

hmmm,
Where to start. So once again I've been suffering from writersblock. Was actually surprised I managed to choke this piece out, it's not my best work and infact not vary pleased with how it came out, Not really in sync with the original poem (Torture) this was actually going to be a new poem, however decided mix the two and ended up with this.. However though it's finished and while I do not like modifying my poems once they are completed, I may decide to revamp this one again haha.. Your thoughts?

It never ceases to amaze me

It never ceases to amaze me that a poet never thinks thier best work is thier best work, yet putit out for others to enjoy who judge quite worthy of high praise! This still belongs up there but that's just my humble opinion... ;) great read!


Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Thank you, always looking

Thank you, always looking forward to your comments!! haha and you are right it happens a lot, guess trying to find reassurance that they are wrong and it is worthy enough to be part of their work. Again thank you always for the kind words
