This intense desolation
This emptiness rising from within
Wretch, purge, release
Wretch, purge, release

The feel of my bowels
being ripped out
through aortal means

This is what bitter feels like
This is justice
This is what we three have done

This is justice
And it all started with one, blinking question


Hello, Pained -
I am yours in misery and self-destruction

Hello, Unloving -
I am yours in non-reciprocated efforts

Hello, Justice -
I am yours with loving words passed from your lips
To hers
And your sword at my neck.
