They wonder how she does it
How she lives dreams knowing there will be no happy ending
How she smiles back knowing their teeth are merely dams
that hold in their speculations
See, some days,
it crawls up my sanity…
bending the bough of my mind at the roots
Come closer to me and feel what breaks
Feel what shatters here while it consumes
Feelings transformed to fumes that choke life from limbs
rip breath from lips and collapsed lungs…
Swallow the death here
Taste its marrow and fiction
I wonder if Death can keep its promises
If it can really embrace all of me
Or does it have the human trait of imperfection?
Will it forget to hold me forever after this courtship is over?
After it knows every cell attached to this frame?
After the climax of my end,
will it continue to revel in these walls?
No one will ever know how I wish this were true
How I long to keep Death here
How I wish this tragedy could end with me,
and never touch another life
This would be my happy ending
But who ever said life would be a fairytale anyway?
