The Revolt

Fermenting in her heart
Was a bitter revolution
Tearing at the flesh
Was a silent scream of hushed desire
She could feel it rise within her
Like vomit in her throat
RELEASE ME cried the beast
LET ME RIP THIS WORLD APART

The war began inside her
As the gunfire pounds her soul
This monster is her weapon
Too terrible to let go
The tears burned in her dark eyes
And stung, rolling down her skin
Retaining all the anger
Is killing her, destroying her

LET ME HAVE YOUR ENEMIES
The awful creature howled
LET ME TAKE YOUR PAIN, MY LOVE
LET ME TAKE YOUR SORROW
Temptation is ever burning
And bitter is the taste
She let loose that sweetest vengeance
Watched the world fall to waste

No heaven to give them sanctuary
No angel could save her foes
Kept under pressure all her life
Finally, the hate can’t help but explode
The crumbling ruins
Of her decimated days
In the shadow of the monster
Drained of all her rage

A starless night begins to fall
The sick smell of smoke still thick in the air
The aftermath of all she’s done
Post-trauma; silence in the dark
The beast walks away
Her bloodlust sedated
And leaves the lady
Cold and empty
And utterly alone.
