No.240: Berserker


You hid in me the sharpest blades
and told me to cut through all the nonsense in my way
and I obeyed,

but what you didn’t mention
was how hard it would be
to keep my katanas in their sheath
once I unleashed them,
or that not every problem can be solved
with sheer reason.

I guess, at the end of the day,
boys get carried away with their toys
until something or someone breaks to pieces.

I guess an angel without restraint isn’t very far from a demon.
