A Horror

Should you have seen such a sight
Tears would be born in your eyes
And shutting the emotion
Would be impossible
As it all begins to come together
Piecing together a horror

Should you have seen such a sight
In the dead of night
Such hate could have filled your heart
And in brief, it would be
A memory that will always play
As your heart beats

Should you have seen such a sight
A gasp, a shudder of fright
Would creep under your skin as the night
Pieced together a scene of misery
A human being peeling off her skin

As the blood drips
And within, the pain cannot be soothed
Numb and incomplete
All because she cannot feel herself breathe
Not here, so she’d adhere to strip off her skin
Not knowing where else to begin
