Tarnished Affection
Author: Scorpio


Tick tock, tick tock
The clock is ticking
Run away before
The world starts breaking

what have you done?
You wretched thing
On puppet strings
You control no one

Sin into your fickle mind
F*ck your brains out
You filthy blind
Lover of mine

Swallow the vile blood
Choke on your words
As you fall
Into my arms

Sink into my hatred
As I fall
More into you...

------- Author's Notes -------

This poem's stanzas are so random, I think I hate it because of that. Also, I can't stand how I wrote it - I think this is one of my worst, by far. It's actually very contradictional on so many levels- But that's the way I wanted this one to be. The explanation is the love AND hate visualized within the narrator's feelings, the constant inner conflict. I was actually tempted to try and make this into a song, but I'm still not sure. Forgive the title, it's the best I could come up with. Any criticism?
