Flood of Self-Corruption -------------------------------------------
Criss-cross these fingers through the blood
Stare at it blankly
Hoping for the beginning of a self-corrupting flood
You ever wonder how this should be.
No, your actions were all taken blindly
Yet somehow you saw what was before me
Now I donít care what you want
Just give back what was mine
Your fist smashed this pride
No longer leaving the glistening blood to shine
How you lie so clean Iíll never know
But Iím taking you so you no longer show
--all you found on the inside
Sharpen your drama skills
Tell all other ears youíre innocent
Yet a guilty conscience kills
Iíll ride across your conscience like a leaf across the breeze
Your nostrils will be plugged
So this guilt you cannot sneeze
Youíve let your fun and games begin
As your body slowly becomes broken
The flesh of conscience, cold and blue
All of this I could have told you
But Iíll never give you the benefit
You did nothing but backstab me
And Iíll rip out these eyes so you can never see
Whatís that sound?
Now youíre screaming my name
Itís so loud,
--as your blood soaks up all this shame
Feel me crawling
Youíll always hear my echoing voice calling
Words of everything youíve done to me
--dance upon the ocean of your mind
And youíve nothing left to find
Donít even dare to pick up that phone
That cord between us I severed
Leaving you to stand alone
Returning how you made me feel
Yes, my turn to spin the wheel.
well, great work i must say. it always hurts when friends backstab you. you have captured this feeling really well. what really liked about this piece was the expressive language you used, flood of corruption, lots of symbolism as i can see. lots and lots of them, great way to express the power of conscience, and great way to end it too, "my turn now". thats what you mean right? it is rather very long but keeps the reader glued to it, and that i credit to your style of writing. great work dude, this screams talent like i've never seen!
the pain of betrayal slapped in your face by a trusted friend... that always stings when it happens and the way you express it here is very clear and very strong in emotion...
"How you lie so clean Iíll never know"
- that is so representative of the shock it is to realize dishonesty... I've also had the experience of having my trust betrayed by a believed close friend of mine... for me, the confusion, the hurt and the anger are expressed strongly in this one line here...
very expressive and justifiable feelings... sorry you had to go through that experience though *hug*
thanks for taking the time to read and comment my posting... I appreciate it very much :) I want to say that I myself do not tend to gather around people of the sort but sometimes it is beyond your decision and you are subjected to this kind of situation (ex lunch room at work, type of deal)... not meant to be condescending toward your age but as you will carry on in life you will see it will happen to you more than you would like... it's a major bore *sigh*
