    dead fish bone soul. fly-caressed carcass, mountain of trash, you eyes like moon pies cheap and sweet, but deadly to eat. a finger swish, hair tangled, tongue words bubbling up, out. regret generates steam, whistle alarm blows: you are you are you are dead fish bone soul....

    i think i rise and fall like tides and bring my eyelids down like the sun horizon dark, pushing softly back on me. rolling shoulders like waves hush breath, great moon eye coffin nail vertebrae your dark raven heart ticks inside like a bomb. I try not to hurt but i am a square peg in a ro...

    in that moment i saw it all so clearly, when.. your lips caressed me softly in the flickering light of the tv screen. here we are, i thought.. and look at us glowing white hot and i don’t even mind your wandering hands. sometimes i open my eyes just to see yours serenely shut, what a...

    i saw you in a crowd and it was like my eyes blink shut the world and there was only you in front of me, a magnet beckoning my blood tides to you... I didn't know your name but i knew you were forever....

    I think about the words at night in silent contemplation, they have me pressed against a cold window, gathering condensed breath upon the icy glass. I swear I didn't cause any harm bearing these worthless fruits of thought. the words I said you said the words that forged life on their o...

    did you make me from a piece of yourself? the way god made eve from adam's rib? i feel like one of your detached limbs, rotting without your pulse in me. is it wrong to say i wish i could die this way? you threw away all of the letters i wrote you it would be better to burn because now ...

    i am thinking of you softly like the lighting in a dressing room, you are in the mirror and i am trying you on for size. i think you never really did fit quite right, but it's okay i can't force myself to leave you behind. reels of tape burning up in the background, nobody notices o...

    you know, I thought that if I just buried it deep enough it wouldn't be able to claw itself out. just throwing more s*** on top more and more and more. but surely it always turned up again. sometimes I stare at myself in the mirror for a very long time until I am no longer familiar to m...

    and I said there was nothing left of me, but you told me to be still in the stale night air I could feel your heat near me, but I could not see you you told me to trust in the things I could not see and you walked further away from me until I was sure you were gone for good I watched the moon ...

    inside me, a limp heart beats softly like the roar of an ocean ten miles away I held on to your image to convince myself you exist in parts, you disintegrated and now you are only an aftertaste, lingering I put my own hand on my face, heat radiating like fever am I really here? I feel unreal ...

    I leave myself enough room in my clothes so I can wax and wane depending on the days I put my finger in my throat to gauge how full I am too much, I shrink for a few days, fill myself up again when I begin to run on fumes sometimes I forget to feed my cat and I think "I wish someone forgot ...

    a bubble beneath the skin, banal bug broken, misplaced a name on a card, blowing in the wind we arrived together, a crossroads of sorts a bruise, we boil softly capillaries burst we touch lips, a fire ignites the forest burns steadily, why isn't it hot? jaundiced heart, shrivel away love, n...

    Blood-rosy lips, Teeth ivory, sharp Not like a knife, But like a diamond-pointed spear. Vampirette, grin gleaming, Drinking the blood of night. Only 18, but stalking In a short dress that matches Her crimson pout. Shredded stockings, ragged breath, Bumming cigs from the boys. Giggling, ru...

    look here the sweat of the earth and the blood on our hands and the love sickness in all of us is the twisted result of a shanking from the devil himself he stands behind us waits in shadows behind doors we don’t even see.. we’re utterly blind and our limbs fly wildly throug...

    all of the good people, all of the bad, all of the angels and demons, the nightmares i’ve ever had. all of the people that i’ve ever been all of the tears and nights i won’t live through again. all the times that i told you that i was your w**** i’d be anybody you wanted me for. ...

    She’s the girl with no face, nobody is her name, she floats and drifts and whisper-walks around the crowds of anxious teens. they don’t see her, they don’t call her name nobody nobody oh, the irony. she tells herself invisibility is invincibility but at night what’s the use? no ey...

    chapped lips on chapped lips, passion licking my bones, love, whisper my name, trail your fingers down my spine, my spirit, my being, oh, love, crush me inside of you. forget me, although I have you carved into me, in the form of a bloody heart on my hip. love, I deserve to feel this bloo...

    I clean up. Slowly, deliberately making sure that everything is in exact order. I wash the grease out of my hair and stare at my wet face in the mirror. I sigh, as I often do, as people often do when they are lonely. I open the blinds and stare out the window at the cars passing by in the sun, going...

    in the grayest of days when even my eyes are gray I pray silently that someone will punch me so a purple bruise will bloom on my gray skin or someone to stab me so red blood will paint my body in its lush hues of pain and anger or someone to kiss me and make my cheeks blush pink a su...

    in the end there is you, the sound of the wind and the rain, and god. nobody else, nobody to hear you cry, beg, there is god, but he forgets to listen sometimes even when you need him most. so there is you and the sound of the wind and the rain, who laugh and laugh and la...

    living dead, fog eyes, deaf ears, walking for a thousand years. nothing in the world to do, finding doors we can’t go through. winding stairs, no rail, no floor, keep falling ‘til we hit the core. death can never make us sweat, flying blindly, no regret. we can never find the way, n...
