    Ten Past Ten

    Inescapable time, unfailingly ticks
    until the break of imperative bands
    serrated nails, lethal pricks
    a throbbing head in tremulous hands

    Punctured holes, enlarged by rage
    a desperate personality to never quit
    for a replica will ultimately disengage
    from a brain that's split

    Tiny beads of perspiration form
    mutilated bands snap as I relapse
    dampened palms, insides warm
    my mind is seized as I collapse

    Devoured by control as I foresaw
    an identity murdered to emerge again
    my blood dripping, her finger tips raw
    for she awakened as one, at ten past ten.
