Looking upon the life we hide,
Behind blood and twisted homicide...
The murder needed to survive,
The bloodlust just to keep us alive.
Bloodshed followed by eternal tears,
existing as the immortal entity of your fears.
Love and lust; I'm the bringer of death,
Pain and time; stealing another guilty breath.
Breaking another promise meant to be kept,
As the creator of the tears you wept.
The smile behind every scar;
blackened light existing with every star.
I'm the twisted, almost gentle pain;
The youngest heartbeat keeping time with the rain.
But when it comes to one final end,
I'm just the problem you wanted to defend.
