My Bloody Valentine


this scar that you wrote for me
this blood-soaked verse
is an accident

i'm not the broken misfit you
intended to slaughter

i was just in the way
at the wrong spot 
on the wrong day

but now my wounds
are a revelation

the horror of a thousand wars
wells up in me

this bloodlusting rage
transfuses my being

i have become
a monster
