Bradley Howington is only a body I inhabit.

Every day, thinkin’ ‘bout you
You got me trapped,
don’t know what to do
save me, somebody save me from you
save me, somebody save me from you
There’s no time to grow, repair
I just wanna kill you, kill you,
watch you suffer in the hands of me
as I suffered many years in the hands of you
I felt the sting of your touch,
and just sat back and watched
my ghost passes me by
oh, I’ll forever remember those frosty eyes!

As ferocious the night went on
kept thinkin’ I did somethin’ wrong
to cause this pain deep inside
blamin’ myself again,
for your heart knows just how to damage
soon it paces, beats into my life just one last kiss
freezer lips, expectation midst the many salty streams
but I’ll suck it up, move on
kill you, kill you, until I come back strong

      Indeed. I’ll try to keep the murderer in me calm. I usually murder with words: poetry. But, one day I might get out there and spill some blood! It’d probably be so thrilling! (LOL). I’m joking, of course. :O 😀 😉

    Very intense and emotional writing ~ the opposite of love though is indifference, not hate ~

      I wanted to get to the point, no beating around the bush. Thinking about the END. Hope you’re having a lovely day, Mark! 🙂

    Strong words for strong emotions, ridding ourselves of those demons, both real and imagined, is such hard work.
    Powerful writing, may you find that peace.

    How easy it is for adults to screw (their) kids up.

      Um, thank you, Anna? Are you implying my parents “screwed” me up?
