Shiver

Shiver

I never stood up to this much…..

shivers of agony

only following the whispers

for I haven’t a clue, what to do

next

Poseidon said left, and Sud said right

So I turned toward the light

the hell I walked into was so beautiful

I cried scars into my cheeks

that remind me of all the times

I have lost

so roll the dice once more

and follow the rising sun

Vishnu will only help those who understand

that there is only the day and

the night

so come and caress my face

I am now blind so lead me

to my death

I know you mean well

but you cannot help yourself

baptize me in your success

I choke on my guilt

the sword I once bore finds a home

in my back, so I buckle, and unbuckle

the belt of shame

starlight, twilight my second sight is fright

pray along with the no ones if you think

it will keep the pain at bay

I pass on with the shiver of something

on my skin

a shiver of your sin

I become another victim

of this brutal place

you seem to thrive in

  1. This entire piece is really beautiful in a chilling kind of way, but this here,

    “I become another victim

    of this brutal place

    you seem to thrive in”

    is exactly how you bring it home, my friend. Pure excellence!
