Confessions from a murderer

Confessions from a murderer

I set the trap;
tricked him into
a catacomb of
words;

rhymes
and allusion
got him
all dizzy;

my naked
words as
they danced
aroused him,

somewhere in
between the
line breaks
I caught hold
of him;
took out
my metaphors
sharpened
on the
whetstone
of time;

I confess!
I confess!
I gorged his
eyes out;
amputated
his
arms
tore his
guts out
and severed
his head
off.

with a profusion
of hazy
images
I wiped
the floor;

I dumped
his body
in a heap
of discarded
poems;

with
metaphors
back in
their sheaths
I left the scene
with just
a blank

space
and a full
stop
at the end
