    THE METAL CLAW

    shining in all it's splendour
    carrying the gory honour
    singing the ballad of war
    whirring, clinking is my metal claw

    when I caress you
    does the warmth the seep through?
    or is it just a brittle illusion?
    do I still feel like a human?

    when the paper I scarred
    did it still hum my heart?
    or is it just raw,
    whirring, clinking of my metal claw?

    when you look in my blue orbs
    what do you see?
    is it a saturated ocean?
    or just a shallow corrosion?
