Tunnel Vision
Author: Keri K Zeiser


I drank the cup in front of me
And felt the poison dribble down
It crossed my lip and hit my chin
Then I realized: You are the devilís son

Each word from your mouth is tainted
Iím just a stubborn pawn in the act
For you threw away a living history
And became more than a killing machine

I never said I would die and wait forever
But all the wounds will never scar
With hot cheeks set in flames
I am hallucinating once again

Rambling on about our time
I told you off and said goodbye
It was just a single crack in the path
No longer a need to raise my hope

It was kind of difficult for me to categorize this poem.
