goddess-sized bed

sprawled out –
have you forgotten
this isn’t your place
four of my six
pillows make your
halo of comfort
and I’m falling
off the side of
my own bed
I’m mad, man –
don’t need much
to set me on an it
been feeling your
encroachment
trying to ignore it
but this I can’t –
mine isn’t a bed
for a king, see
it’s goddess sized
and barely fits me –
my glory expands
so enjoy your sleep
beneath full moon
as tonight I creep
but on all the other
nights, don’t be
surprised by our rift
when my bed won’t
contort my will
to make you fit –

not feeling it – so…

a knot in my chest keeps

tying a panicked rhythm

down – as beats scream –

·

echos rattling fragile bones

tightness spreading into

the emptiness expanding

·

gripping at rib prison bars

my sanity is pacing empty

while imagining being full

·

breath still holds me open

as my fringe curls toward

collapse – letting all go, go

·

mind’s eye on an unknown

finish line just out of bounds

the squeaky wheel’s turning

·

poor cosmic rodent sucking

down liquid dillusion spiked

novocaine and white sugar

·

·

·

hungry for something hated

innocence only to be jaded

do not want to feel like this

·

·

do not want to feel like this

sick, confused, can’t deal

like this, I’m not feeling it

·

not feeling it, what of it is

·

hungry, damn famished

no longer just an innocent

·

truth persists noxiously

I’m gagging on my tongue

trying to spit chunks out

·

·

not playing games so I am

forfeiting every competition

it’s not losing unwanted wins

·

·

·

can’t make me want for any

·

I’ll manifest my own choice

·

cornering me blossoms wings

·

not feathers, bright gleeming

·

dynamically refreacting scales

·

thorns and poison tipped claws
