Poetry by Christianna Cannon

I AM THE FLOOD

Had enough of the stress from you
Taking it every day, well now I guess I'm through
I know how I can find love
I smile to myself
Searching for a meaning

In my hand, the gun barrel gleams
Fulfilling some deep psychosexual dream
I am the queen of fate
Death is my science
So full of myself, such power found
Adrenaline surging, my heart starts to pound
I am the reckoning
I am the demon
Searching for a meaning

I switch my mind over, slaughterhouse mode
Giddy with rage I lock and load
I am nightmare incarnate
This is the end
I'm a lone soldier, I've started a war
You can all take a free trip to my own abattoir
I am Armageddon
I am pure hell

Searching for a meaning
In the rain of blood
I believe I am the river
I'm the tide, I am the flood

I watch them scream, try to run away
Maddened I grin, and fire into the fray
I am justice unrestrained
My anger completed
Animal bloodlust burns through my brain
Gun orgasms again, another five slain
I am the thunderhead
I am chaos
But then I see something that wrenches my soul
Shaking, I stare, I'm regaining control
I am the murderess
I am your killer

Blood in my eyes
All I see is red
Blood in my eyes
All I see is red
There's blood on my hands
And now you're dead
There's just the blood
Just the blood

Alone
Alone
Alone I am free
Alone
Alone
Alone I am free
Alone
Alone
Alone I am free
It's a lie

Can't believe that you're gone, I can't even cry
The denial dies hard and I scream to the sky
I am the fallen angel
My retribution comes
Drop my weapons in horror and fall to my knees
Your head in my lap, I sob to you, please
You are all I ever cared for
You are my soul

Searching for a meaning
In the rain of blood
I believe I am the river
I'm the tide, I am the flood

They find me lying in a sticky red pool
Crying over your corpse, even as it grows cool
I am the empty one
Destruction raped me
Wish I'd never done this, wish I'd shot myself too
I'd trade all thirteen dead bodies for one living you
You were the holy child
You were my solace
Now I'll live in my prison until I get old
You were my only warmth, but I reached for the cold
I am the devil's toy
I am forsaken

Searching for a meaning
In the rain of blood
I believe I am the river
I'm the tide, I am the flood

Blood in my eyes
All I see is red
Blood in my eyes
All I see is red
There's blood on my hands
And now you're dead
There's just the blood
Just the blood
