Red Water

When the red water comes out,
my eyes glow green.
There's your inspiration,
your motivation.
Kill me before it's too late;
kill me before i'm already dead.
Lick the sweat from your lip,
breathe in my dying wish.
My soul's hollow is seen in your eyes of fire.

Your brow raised,
my heart melts away...into red water.
Scream at me your insecurities,
watch them lull me into sweet submission.
Lead me on the death march
and lay me in my grave,

your bitter heart, fading, rotting
in its own jealousy.
Erase me from the eye of your past.
Forget i ever walked with you,
forget i ever breathed your name,

forget i ever spoke of loving you.

  I think this poem rocks! Just get over it man, and get on your way! It's like, "i'm sick of the drama, leave me the hell alone."

I don't quite get the "my eyes glow green" part. That sort of trips me up a little. It's the only thing that breaks up the flow/structure, at least for me.

  Sounds like you broke up with someone and you feel really bitter about want them to erase you from their memory. Usually when I've had a bad breakup I'd just want them out of my memory. lol

Your brow's raised,
My heart melts away...into red water
Scream at me your insecurities
Watch them lull into sweet submission
Lead me on the death march
and lay me in my grave

Your bitter heart fading
Rotting in it's own jealousy
Forget I ever walked with you
Forget I ever breathed your name

Forget I ever spoke of loving you

Beautiful! The best part of the poem, the heart of it really. I think it would stand stronger on it's own.

  Well, I can really feel where you're coming from on this. To just melt away into puddles, the pain and rage is so hot... waxy, sticky hateful love, because if they apologized or did something to reunite, you know you'd cave in on the spot and die to go back. And I totally get the "forget I ever walked with you, breathed your name... It is just crippling to leave someone and know that they still carry those intimate pieces of you that you gave them.... no matter what happens, it has already happened and you can't un-do loving them... and they have that piece of you, even if it is memory, and you just want to tear it back from them, tear their eyes out, tear their worthless [censored] cheating lying heart out and smash them to death....

OMG, shut me up! Red water... precisely!
