Love Poem: Hell & Back

Hell & Back

Your heart heaves in your chest
as you fall into the abyss.
Razor sharp walls
mince your body up,
and needles are shot
like missiles at you.
The beast slowly scrapes
your skull away
and sucks at your flesh
stuck in his teeth.

Your heart
becomes a blazing inferno,
as you claw and tear
at your chest
to put it out.
Then when all you desire
is Death,
you surface back to reality,
only to find
a vile black leech
sucking the emotions from you
     and Another.
You tear away
the slime ridden creature
leaving a grotesque,
disease infested scar in place.
