Pitiless

Pitiless
As Vlad Tepe’s eyes
Gazing at the carnage
Of his artistry
You rise

Remorseless as he
You remain
Against all the cries wrung out
From this
Symphony of pain

Bloodless lips
Like his icy kiss
Draw back
Startling with abject fear
To drink your bliss

Ruthless here
His battlefield of old
Spiked humanity
Scream wordlessly
All your truths untold

    Yikes! How do you know what he kisses like? Is this the guy you kissed for ‘Kissing’s Sake’? Horrible poem πŸ˜€
