Your blood runs free down the face of the mountain

You are split asunder, you are free

Your mind troubled no more, your heart open

Your severed head a trophy for my mantle

Your limbs a feast for the demons that mocked you

Your body a gory cave, a crypt for your soul

Your entrails nourishment for the next wound

Your dead eyes still and grateful

Your blood pools at the foot of the mountain

An offering, a sacrifice, a disgrace

The blade that opened you, warm yet from the taste of you

I revel in the freedom of what is finished

This death a rapturous beginning

This blood the price of betrayal

This mountain a monument

A ward in tribute to love lost

This is packed full of power, and emotive imagery. So good is the imagery that I can almost taste the carniage. And then right at th end, a change of ambiance This mountain a monument A ward in tibute to love lost And the anger and hatred blends with the pain of loss.... This is stunningly good I salute you T

Spilled "blood" runs deep and I see it ran deep into your soul. I am glad you found the courage within to face this and to realize that you have had enough. Keep your head up and live your life!

Especially towards the end of my failing marriage, I envisioned the love inside me as a separate entity. It seemed to have its own will, its own logic, and its own life. I dreamed of ways to kill it. I would relive the most hurtful things over and over in an effort to drive it away, to force logic to prevail over this pitiful creature. Obviously I failed to conquer what I felt was some kind of monster living within me. I could not understand why I would continue to live in abomination when it was torturing the very fabric of my mind and soul. One fine day in April of this year I finally went against this malignant creatures will and said I was finished. I’d like to say I never looked back, but I have – many, many times. I feel so very different these days. But do I trust what’s inside me completely? The answer is no. I’ve seen the living dead movies. Zombies are harder to kill than living things. I keep a close guard over what’s going on with me these days. I’ll burn that fucker if it even twitches…
