Scent of a Kill

Copper rises into the air
I get the scent from everywhere
Beneath my blade the blood runs free
dark red drops on the floor I see

An easy kill I made just now
as a slaughterman to a sow
A victim chosen on a whim
no matter her no matter him

No care is taken in the choice
So long as I get to rejoice
Life given over to sate my lust
to take my fill I know is just

The power given to me divine
on human suffering I get to dine
Never sated I hunger still
another night another kill

This is well written, great rhyme and meter. But really gross. =} I do hope this is just fiction.
