hermetic (Pimple) by Bill Z Bub
My chest is a cauldron, heaving. my heart is a wicked spell, seething. my brain is a crone, cackling. and the candles have turned to black pools in the hollow vats of my face. you tricked me with your secret. you cradled me in lies. you trapped me with your steel-pin tongue and stripped me down to burning skies, walked widdershins while streaming blood, and left this devil to the flood.

Up the ladder: Beer
Down the ladder: you first time in my sight

and the candles have turned (1 note)

you tricked me with your secrets
you kept me with your chants
you held me with your blood (second note)

Besides that, you gotta know I dug it.

I'll wait to see if you edit to vote.

a bit odd, the first verse build up is well but it seems to move too fast to the end.

still original use of language sets it apart

What an excellent display of madness! This person seems terrible. I enjoyed this piece.

Siete italiani? Potete leggere questa traduzione terribile? In caso
affermativo, dia prego un'occhiata al mio poem "canto di
desiderio".
