We Nevermore Shall Part

"From the sublime to the ridiculous, is but a step"- Napoleon Bonaparte






Now comes the extirpation
 I fell with my hands
 With an exclamation
 The Archangelic command
 I make like a thief
 Stealing back what's mine
 The pen is now unsheathed
 The fight is line for line
 Behold a little rust
 The healing injury
 Broken! Broken trust!
 Your villainous sureties
 I peel the nautilus
 A voyager of dark
 Awaken to your lusts
 My usurped and broken heart
 There is claw marks
 On the veins
 Membranes ripped apart
 I give you a new name-
 We nevermore shall part.
