Seductive Steel


There it is that shiny thing
With edges sharp and true
That glimmer in the moonlight
Lustre Silver, white and blue

It tempts me with it’s offer
Go on – Nullify your pain
Thrust me deep into that monster
Till that bloody beast is slain

Or slice me gently over skin
That’s virgin to the cold of steel
It stings at first but then the warmth
Is all that you can feel

So now I’m watching as it shimmers
Now it’s calling out to me
Maybe this is how it ends
Perhaps this is my destiny

Such a stunning contradiction
is a simple little knife
In one hand mans own savoir
Another – taker of life
