The Jungle That Goes On Forever

April 15, 2011
Indigo and scarlet lights

A hidden jungle within itself

A zoo
Animals wearing masks and costumes

They smell blood, they gather

They know a sacrifice will begin
A sanctuary

A temple

A safe haven

Not quite.
Strength is power

Lust is power

Fear is power

Knowledge is forsaken
Children are vultures

Basking and glorifying

Ecstatic not to be chosen
Instincts are growing strong

I hear a growl

My heart runs far
But I know it is time

I can hear drums

A steady beat

Dum Bum Bum

Dum Bum Bum
Claws tear into my soft pink flesh

An ancient ritual that will never die

If I can only hold a little longer
The monsters watch all thinking the same thoughts
I will not be the one.


I will not be the one.
