    “Roots”

    Tree Roots digging into bloodied soil
    Grasping that foundation with frenzied faith
    Feeding on mental torture
    Like some pathetic moisture
    Giving fake sustenance

    Those dying roots, begging for renewed life
    But still clinging to that dried underground
    They lick decay and barren slush
    A passive battle rages
    Inner conflict causes deformity

    Those hopeful roots curl into each other then
    Cracking and in pain, they grasp the other side
    Intertwined, hugging, they then rest
    In their demented form of affection

    Self-Intertwined
    Bound unto death...
