These Hands Are So Red...

These hands are now red and so slicked with this blood,

I can't even wash it in a basin of mud...

As I scrape at the skin of those demons I chase,

I am left with a smile mixed with pain on my face.

Since I swore I would savour this blatant disgrace,

Let perversion be writ in these scars I will trace.

From the tip of my shoulders to the base of my tongue,

Are the names of those sleepers so cold and so young...

Seeing that there is not much lit now on DA saddens me, so I decided to post a nice little sadistic piece to entertain you all. What do you think its about my dear readers?

If you'd like to support me, purchase the audio reading and pdf via the download button for just 10 points. PDF has a nice creepy background to enhance your reading experience. Enjoy ^^

(P.S. those who purchase should leave a comment or a note, so that I can add you into the support section which will be done up in the journal tomorrow morning ^^)

I have read two pieces of your work and have decided we are kindred spirits. I love the sadistic nature of your literature and the way they twist and weave in my mind. For lack of a better word, very intoxicating.

I really like it! The rhyme scheme is solid and for the most part makes sense.

Though I don't really understand the basin of mud bit, is there a meaning to it or did you just want to keep the rhyme scheme?
