The Dark Poet

deep within my rotten soul
lies hatred and disease
i wander through lonely rooms
knife in hand
blood dripping from my lips

i slice off my skin and bones
words resonate in my wounds
through paths of disillusion i roam
dragging vowels by their weary hair

suicidal corpses trail in my wake
chaos created wherever i go
i plunge my blade in stupid ignorant faces
pray you dont test my rage

    I was wondering when you were going to finally enter this. Took you long enough lol. In your 2nd to last stanza, the imagery of 'dragging vowels be their weary hair,' is super unique. Best wishes in this fun contest. Chris.
