Venom

Sweet crimson
Staining drops 
Make the memories
Crystal finds the glimmer
In the darkness of this hole
 
Her fragile body
Blackened by lethal injection
Liquid fire flows through her veins
Paralyzing her
Setting her free
 
Every night
Is a brand new day
Shadows of loved ones
Linger and scream
Praying that you will stop
 
The Venom has spread
Infecting your heart and mind
With warmth and power
Making those shadows dissolve
Into nothing but fragments
 
Once the Venom is done with you
There is nothing left
Abused and neglected
That precious pulse of life
Beats one last time
