what’s left of remorse

when nothing was left
you always found something else to take

music once vibrated on my skin, but
rhapsody-white strings bind me into
a song of pleading
thru the light and clockwork
where your heart used to be

perversions have eclipsed
all reasoning,
declawed and dismembered,
i’ve been packaged, clean,
ready for the ravenous beasts

hopelessness looked
and it found me
in the walls
smeared with my blood
