My Companion
  

My Companion

I give birth to you with a single unholy thought

 Anger, greed, lust, form the strands of your DNA

Pain, jealousy, and ignorance are the helix

I feel so alone, so desolate, my soul is lain out raw

I feed you, you consume me

 

Your first taste of me is love, I give it freely and I am liberated

You swallow it whole, the taste is so sickening sweet

Then you feast on my morality; delicious

You are delighted with the depression that overcomes me

I feed you, you consume me

 

You grow exponentially with each passing day

Gorging on bits and pieces of me, self worth, security, peace

Your feces reek of paranoia and loneliness

Your fetid breath clings to me and cloaks me in hopelessness

I feed you, you consume me

 

Finally I name you, at this moment you are exposed

I call to you Hate, and you come, companion of my rage

You come and you fill me up, you are me

I laugh dementedly; all this time in secret you devoured my sanity

I feed you, you consume me

You have really done a very convincing job with what hate is, what it does and how it behaves. Excellent .... your last line repetitions really bring it home!

I'm just dying to hear this as a song, I think it's so raw and the emotions in it are so truthful and when i read this I couldn't help but play it in my head as a song and the background music was that of Korn's. Hands down to you! Alexis

Again, your descriptive powers are to be praised. And the message within your poem the world needs to know about, for there is too much of. I liked this a lot. Thanks for sharing it.
