Rise of a dark queen
The corrosive allure of power
Has eaten through my skin
My heart, in volcanic eruption, drained
By my own vampiric lust
Has become a diamond:
Hardened, unfeeling—black.
My control is unyielding, unmerciful...
Fractured?
I taste the cold blood of betrayal
And seek my revenge.
Cruel desire oxidizes my soul
My hand tightens around the knife
That sinks into the back of my closest friend
Whose body paves my path to victory.
I am a tarnished, pitted veneer
Wearing a bloody diamond crown.
