from bed, a second attempt to run around the block

the same thing applies to you

creatures claw their way from my warm worn out chest beating through flesh and breaking bones seeking fresh air

a new host

a trusting soul

they paraded through



putting out lights left glowing in the caverns of my emotions once held out for you to see

to taste

dine with

now waste


once, i led the way

now my carcass splayed on a dining room table that once displayed the fortunes of letting go of our parents chains strangling their names and dancing over the mind numbing games of self righteousness

they played

ignorant of where it would leave us

the ones who watched

we took notes

i ruined you

you had a chance

when i told the truth

now the gremlins grow in you

waiting for a chance

to feast again
