Like Hands That Strike A Clock

you've stolen everything you wanted
leaving a sea of broken bodies in your wake
sucked the marrow from the bone
just a shell remains

this house has become a prison
afraid of the dark
the shadows rise up like specters and monsters
she is fighting for her life

they were more than just bodies
they were more than containers of skin
they were not yours for the taking
these broken hearts will never mend

and i hope you're haunted by the ghosts of those you've broken
sleepless nights and tortured days
no rest for the wicked
no redemption
no peace

(but this is a life reclaimed)

no more cowering in the darkness
she smiles through blood and crooked teeth
this is freedom
no more abuse

struck down

you are the cancer
you are the scourge
you are pariah
you are the coward
you deserve nothing less than to have everything you love stripped away
