A black void escapes my lips.
As the infection of pain takes over.
I’m screaming to an empty room.
In it lays all my fears.

My eyes are filled with parasites.
Seeing nothing but black.
Which leaks it’s way into my heart.

Trembling fingers, and sweaty palms.
Bugs clinging to my hair.
Nesting in my skin.

I have been contaminated.
By the sins of others.
Nobody can harm me now.
I have been contaminated
By the whispers of the heartless.

Reaching forth for some light.
It only seems to burn my skin.

My right eye has been removed.
And left with a hole.
Head spinning round’ and round.

Sitting in this dirty contaminated room.
A perfect fit for me.
After not posting a poem for a bit I rummaged through some oldish (couple days old) and found this. Please enjoy!

Comments and favorites mean so much to me!

I love the visuals. Do you ever sit down and just write whatever comes to mind? Get your mind thinking for a second and have maybe a general direction and then just write down whatever comes to mind? I think you should try that for practice if you don't already because I see some really good potential in here. I love the image of the eye torn out and bugs in the hair, sitting in a dark room with shaking, sweaty hands. :) It looks really cool, congrats :)

OOooo this poem just takes me all over the place! It seems the narrator could be simply in mental anguish or literal harm.
