A Horrific Love Affair
dark, dank, foreboding
fiddles playing in the mind in minor
chains rattling welcome
what was that!
sweet, salty, not dried yet
calling a name
yours? What shall you do?
a body there
skeletal sockets staring back at you
comprehending your sticky end
jaw relaxed as if to grin
a shriek, moans
"no more, no more, dear God nooooooo..."
and another shriek
turn off that TV,
else you will dream of this all night
knowing that you cling to it
wondering why you dance with shadows
bid them welcome to your mind
'tis not well to live in obscurity
even if just to enjoy the show.
