With fierceness, the scorching heat of the darkness
Twined itself around this heart
And interweaves itself into an unwavering tomorrow
Dir en Grey – Hageshisa to, kono mune no naka de karamitsuita shakunetsu no yami
I sit against this concrete, stare plastered like a Pollock painting on the opposite wall, replaying foggy scenes that have long gave their last breath. I seemingly see, like a seething seer, seeking to seep into the seeds of truth, every detail through the clouds of time.
I experience time like a horny, rabid dog locked away in a car that’s headed for a cliff, clawing at the windows. Life’s breath is thick, clogged, like vomit, as it pours lovingly out the doors of my temple – the doors I’ve forced open.
And with one glorious, guttural howl, the curtain closes, the wall no longer forced to carry my heavy stare along its cracks. It weeps, for if anything, at least there was something to fill them.
I open the blinds, and notice no walls. There’s no memories, dancing over my head in their gruesome ritual of remembrance, and there’s no fog. Instead, it’s only her, standing taunting, a hurricane of thoughts shooting out of her eyes, as she drives me into a corner. “Welcome.” she speaks, with the voice of a faithless angel. “This was the road to Heaven. But now, it’s just the road to me.” she calls, the smirk she summons peppering across my wounds like salt in cuts.
Her song washes over and through me. There’s something in her voice I can’t quite put my finger on, like she’s the Officer and the murderer, but her Justice isn’t balance, it’s rotten, five weeks old pig’s blood dipped in kerosene and forced down my throat. And yet, I can’t help but keep my mouth open.
But I don’t keep my mouth open for her, even as she seduces my body with threats. No. Even as I’m chugging her Justice, I yearn for redemption, like a Death Row prisoner yearns for the freedom to die.
Those are my thoughts, and they’re pushing back, little boys and girls hoping to deflect the tsunami that is her hands slithering down my throat. But all there is, is drowning. This was once the road to Heaven. Now, it’s just the road to her.
