Reprehensible Air Suckers

Like a rabid vampire licking your malicious lips
Lusting after the salty drops of my soul
Scratching at the paper-thin scabs formed
On scars that your vicious claws have slashed
Across the soft beating flesh of my aching heart
Undergoing a rapid transformation to a stone anchor
Dragging me to the unknown depths of my sorrows
Drowning in the tears you’ve been waiting for
Your repugnant smirk of glee dripping acid
I swallow emotions that tremble and ooze once more
And struggle against their affected uprising
To stop unwanted satiating of your contemptable hunger
For the naked pain and suffocating agony of others
The carnivorous, venomous, wield of putrid power
That I am too continuously shattered to challenge
