The Poems of a Rainbow World, 5th Segment - young Adriel has lost his parents and begins to have nightmares as he faces the world alone.

In the Flesh

Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother? Mother?

A horripilation of dread pricks my spine

Absolute horror

Absolute horror My heart pelts to a tribal rhythm,

Absolute horror My heart pelts to a tribal rhythm, vociferous and wroth,

For I now dwell in my fixed abode

In the nether regions For I now dwell in my fixed abode

In the nether regions In the vicinity of fire and brimstone For I now dwell in my fixed abode

demons as neighbours In the nether regions In the vicinity of fire and brimstone For I now dwell in my fixed abode

the devil as my landlord In the nether regions In the vicinity of fire and brimstone For I now dwell in my fixed abode

A smouldering zephyr caresses my skin

A smouldering zephyr caresses my skin Toxic bubbles in my epidermis

A smouldering zephyr caresses my skin Toxic bubbles in my epidermis The pains of my past abandoning my blood

A smouldering zephyr caresses my skin Toxic bubbles in my epidermis The pains of my past abandoning my blood SEEKING RELEASE!

The ichor bursts hither and yon

Flows in a torrent out of my body

Flows in a torrent out of my body My heritage wrenched,

Flows in a torrent out of my body My heritage wrenched, my memories fading into black as I play the lead role in this cage

Hush.

‘Mother?’

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence,

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence, from deep within,

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence, from deep within, and my fear belches upward in a violent wave,

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence, from deep within, and my fear belches upward in a violent wave, abrasive,

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence, from deep within, and my fear belches upward in a violent wave, abrasive, burning my innards,

‘Mother?’ I scream in this intense silence, from deep within, and my fear belches upward in a violent wave, abrasive, burning my innards, lacerating my throat

Blisters.

I need to imbrue my hands with blood,

I need to imbrue my hands with blood, a blade to lance my throat to drain the pus within,

I need to imbrue my hands with blood, a blade to lance my throat to drain the pus within, as to sap out the infected tissue that had become of my soul

Nightmare.

‘Father?’

‘Father?’ I wail,

‘Father?’ I wail, my hero,

‘Father?’ I wail, my hero, the guerrilla who endeavoured to fix this broken world,

‘Father?’ I wail, my hero, the guerrilla who endeavoured to fix this broken world, consumed by a flame,

‘Father?’ I wail, my hero, the guerrilla who endeavoured to fix this broken world, consumed by a flame, dissected by the bombs

Fuck.

‘I need treatment, a cure for this horror!’

'It's in a bottle.'
