Forever Alone

I understand what true pain is,
waking up without a soul;
existing forever, but always alone.

I know where sorrow is born,
In icy depths of mans empty heart;
his spirit of love to tear apart.

I see misery in every face,
knowing no mercy, nor joy, nor peace;
only death can bring them ease.

I hear loathing in every word,
every breath a burning pain;
lies, deceit, and wraths distain.

I feel hate inside mankind,
rotting filth, disease, decay;
in their defense, nothing to say.

I taste the rotting flesh of sin,
toxic putrescence, bitter and vile;
evil by nature, the mind of a child.

I am the truth in all that you feel,
my humanity stolen, compassion is gone;
I am that which you know is wrong.

-G.W. Mainhood

  2. I think I just had an eargasm. Or I would if someone had read it to me. "Intense" is a good word to describe it.
