Bleeding, Broken, SMACKED

Mon, May 7, 2012 at 12:23 PM By: Maiden of Malice

When a god’s eye flutters,
Oblivious to the pounding dangers of nightfall,
And the devil wastes no time in
Releasing The Demons,
When will it strike you?
When the vortex of Greed
Threatens to deny you
The simple humanities of
Love-Hate-Sex-Pain
And insanity,
Or you find that lying
Awake brings nothing
But another nightmare,
Will you take off like a wounded animal,
Scared of The Oracle and
Running Blind with unnatural instinct?
Oh no, my dear friend,
I think you’ll find that
Voodoo is not a delicacy
For the tongues of savage men,
Nor is it the poisoned blood
Meant to revive our
Pseudo-savior.
Your Bad Religion
Has taught you nothing,
And as a result,
You have suffered the consequence
Of ignorance
Of what exactly I Am.
I Stand Alone,
Watching as the others fall
Straight Out Of Line
And into the empty plane
Of mankind’s selfish world.
Down, down, down they Spiral,
Oh how gravitational realization
Of loss of never-had power can seem.
But you,
My dear child,
Are meant for The Light
Of bittersweet Avalon.
You will be smite down in
Temporary shame,
But redemption is just a step away
And pure, distinguished character
Is but a skeleton hidden within you.
Ah, the Temptation!

If he catches you Cryin’ Like A Bitch,
Or trying to slide through the chasm
Of conformity,
Be forewarned:
You will find your skin blue,
Your blood dried black on top,
And your undeveloped skeleton
Ripping through it all.
He will force you
Into a birth that you may or may not
Be ready for,
But it is an inevitable honor
Bestowed only to the
Most noble of children.
The deity wants nothing more
Than for you to accept your excellence
As oppose to tearing it from your flesh.
So if he must abuse you,
It is abuse with good intention and love:
At some point in your creation
You were blessed with
Cuts and scrapes,
Gashes and tears,
And broken bones.
In essence,
You
Were
GODSMACKED.

    Aw :) You guys are so cool and everyone here is so much more involved with each other than with the Disturbed site. I'm sorry I've been so neglectful. I'm definitely going to make it a point to get on here more and look at other people's stuff instead of just posting.

    P.S. Elly: you're definitely one of THE coolest Smackers I know, and that's a fact :) \m/
