The deadliest sin
I could give enough
to save the whole human race
but fuck you, it's mine
Well, at least I was here for awhile.
The color of royalty
And I deserve it so
She was stunning; the kind of girl that made men kill. Ruby lips, gold hair, jade eyes, and marble skin adorned her face.
Now, she rots for all eternity in a box in the ground. In 10,000 years, archaeologists will dig up her coffin only to find a titanium hip and knee and marvel at her perfectly preserved bionic appendage. How frivolous all this seems at times.
I spin around and around, frantically, in a panic, utterly helpless.
She's gone. I can't find her. I don't know who took her. She's just gone.
Was it death? Shadows? Boogeymen?
Before she was born, I longed for death but never found it.
Now that she's here, I long for life.
If something happens to her, how can I live? Will I ever be the same?
Will life be worth living?
My precious daughter, more valuable than platinum and gold.
I can't stand to lose her. I fear it more than death.
There is no pain, no hell worse than this.
There will never be another like her, flesh of my flesh; blood of my blood.
And it's my fault. Whether it was or not, really, it was my fault.
I brought her into this world, and failed to protect her.
She trusted me and I let her down.
I don't deserve to live. So I shall lay here and wither, until death comes and takes me too.
And then we can be together, my beloved and I.
Once more, we can dance and play; for all of eternity.
But for now, I shall live my life with her.
Take each day as it is; a true gift from the universe.
A temporary reprieve until we must inevitably be parted by death.
And I will love her, fearlessly, until that day.
You and Me
crashing all around inside
until it's over
You whisper sweetly
crispy autumn apple words
full of small maggots
I'm not asleep.
the nightmare never ends
I'm not asleep.
