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...


-Chen Yuan Wen, 15th March 2013

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?

Often you don't wash substances that cling to your hands with just water and soap. Mud can be a good way of removing the abrasive stuff and then you remove the mud/dirt with soap and water ^^

Do not ask how I know this mkay? :3
