Eyes ringing, ears bleed

I am sputtering incoherent rage
Seething above a cold and ancient
Monster
Waiting to be freed from shackles
Forged in blood and promises

Cold heart breaks free from warm blood
Two trapped wolves
Salivating at the thought of meat
Long deprived

The long knives wait for willing hands
Wait until will breaks
Until at last the shield of empathy
Of hope and joy
Dies

Until only memories and copper strength
Vie for attention

So begins a war in the heart of one man
So begins a war in us all
