An assassin lives within me

An assassin lives within me

destroyer of faith

I kill in my cold blooded neutrality,

the reasons to love.

I kill the possibilities

that could have emerged

from the womb of eternal truth.

How easily I terminate

the promises that I made

to myself,

in selfish moments of lust.

I am cruel when I penetrate

my sharp sword into my victim.

Fully in my senses

and knowing very well

what will happen next

I throw away goodness

to embrace the evil.

Grappling with the questions

of right and wrong

I smother my morality.

I ravage the chastity of conscience

and bury it deep.

In such moments of frenzy,

I realise I am a killer

An assassin lives within me.
