shed

there is a
reckoning
coming
i reckon
a time
for the beast
to shed the skin
of the fool
to ravage
savage
ruthlessly crush
the remnants
of what once
was a man
but is now
no more than
a shell
of who
i longed to be

too many times
i was tossed
to the side
by those
that claimed
a piece
of my heart
those that
scratched
their initials
into my soul
tore into
my flesh
with sharp teeth
and bitter
jealousy

i cast aside
the delusion
laid across
my sight
the spiderweb
draped over
my mind
this fog of war
this hunger
this passion
this pointless
fucking attempt
at happiness
when all there is
is the empty
promises
left unsaid
