Clench a fist

Clench a fist,

Take a blow to a stone wall

 

Crush your knuckles,

Hear them snap with a rattling

 

Cry to the sky,

Scream out all your pain

 

Now, look at your flesh torn,

Discharging red, atoning for your sins

 

Your rage burning like a flame,

Dancing randomly to the whisper of the wind

 

Certain winds blow it high,

And others simply play with it

 

Yet, eventually, the flame dies

Leaving your heart scorched black

 

Letting rise of a dark smoke,

Clouding the sun above your path

 

You then dwell in a lost world,

Folly acts guided by the hazy visions

 

Stumbling about everywhere

Breaking glass with every move

 

And only to walk through them afterwards

Bleeding your feet until you can’t move

 

Stubbornly, you bend on your knees

And once again, try to crawl your way out

 

The sharp pain flashes quick,

From your palms to the mind,

 

Like bad news across a sea,

Bringing with it, the cold wind of the dead

 

You howl loud, clenching your fists,

Blood dripping onto your ragged clothes

 

And then, shutting your eyes slowly,

You finally let tears run down your face

 

Falling onto your sooty heart,

And eroding it clean with every drop
