Should this fool die Let someone fond of living, Lay in his hand A flower whose glory By no mind ever was Taught how to grow -
~Until I Wilt
Short Published over 3 years ago

Demons run
Vying with guilt
For their passions
And thawing grit
Towards a wench
Who grows restless
Whimpering, breaking
And rising again
Choking on a coal lump
That ravages her beauty
How can her heart heal
When it's ground to dust this way?

There are no guardian angels
Only grave monsters
Leading the little lamb
To her imminent slaughter
Through the gallows, they walk
In the distant habitat she will be lost
While her time is dwindling,
Melting away, like acid rains
Poisoning fish and corroding buildings

If this is all she has left
If her time is indeed ending,
Why must she barricade herself
In a contaminated society that tells her
How to live?
Why even have the audacity at all to think
There's more to life than content?
Or that she has more of a moral claim to happiness
Than her peers who have lived and sinned

Let the demons chase her,
Let the nights be darker and
Drown the invincible sun
Because this battle with life
Can never be won!

i've tried so hard
to fit this into the slot machine
but my coin is bent.

Someone offers
to lend me a different coin
-but i refuse.

i still search
for a
bent machine.
