We Shall Not Be Victims

By Tagen

Pagan blood, cracking bone.
Eviscerated entrails.
Her eyes, they lascerate insides
So inhale, and avert thine,

Air-borne disease; our own
Bad medicine,
Remember smoke,
Like daggers.

(to My)
future unborn,
Forever begetting...
But never regretting
whet with thy talent, son
Neglect not,
And forget not...the forget me nots..
Fae-folk crimson,
Unbred squalor.
Lilite reversed
Seethe, then soothe
Calm the beast in me
In you.

We are free
To pick and choose...
The ripe.

Fire emblem,
My pen:
Write thrice...
Once to blame,
Twice to fight,
Last, to incite.

We shall not be victims.

Bloody omen

Harbringer of
Godless things.

I retreat 
Into sanctuary.

Pagan blood flow -
veins of my
hollow temple.

Misery, speak.
"We shall not be victims."
