Pieces of Me

Pieces of me
Take such pieces of me
Blood from my veins
Flesh from my limbs
Hair from my scalp
Take it all now
Ghostly hands will have
Their due

Pieces of me
Consume such pieces of me
All that I nourish
All that I bless
Riven from me now
Against my very will
Spectral demands will have
Their due

Pieces of me
Bury pieces of me
All that is left
After the meal
After the feast
Appeasing the beast
Deadly souls will have
Their due

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.
