'It's lacking the one thing that keeps us alive. It's lacking people. Stupid, oridinairy, brilliant people!'


I have been told to kill the maiden
and all the innocent souls
that get involved:
I’ve been taught
that I am wrong--
different--
and learned
the way to want such
is violence.
Some may go against me,
but ‘tis not me
they truly fear--
their wild imaginations
run free.
You only see
the monster
my face portrays.
I may have learned wrong
but it’s the only way I know--
so I snuff out the light,
kill the maiden,
and
go on
with my day.
