Gouging

Slicing at veins
Oozing life,
Distress.

Gouging emotion
Frenzied , insane
Pulping flesh

Rip eyes from the sockets
Scratch out the name
Unbearable to remain

A band of steel
Ratcheted around the heart muscle
Crushing existence

Raw, infinite power
Dicing into throw away chunks
Tearing biting stripping resolve

Editing stage:

powerful piece! I felt the despair, the power of it! I'm not sure which side you were writing from, but I felt that it could be either. Nothing to criticize. Love ya, ~ Gee

Ouch! This one jumps off the page to take bite out of the reader. Very dynamic. I loved it all.
