Here's a little Christmas cheer for you all.
When I was little
I thought blood was blue
And, when it touched air
It took on a new hue
Now, I'm not little
I know blood is red
But, blue are my thoughts
Till they leak from my head
"Questions And Answers I Ask Myself On Nights That End In S"
Why do you get so angry when I'm neglectful?
I only hate myself
Why are you so jealous when I get what I want?
I don't get what I want
Why do you get so frustrated when I don't get it right?
I'm apparently trying my hardest
Why don't you just go on and leave me, to die?
I love you and all this too much
Why do you get so scattered, sometimes?
I don't know
Why are you asking me?
I'd rather go to sleep
Than to finish out this day
Than to be another flicker
Through a crudely-carved smile
In the cold and dusk of time, does my skull turn to a cave?
Or, is it too late for decay inside this excavated crest,
Behind this empty, frozen face?
With a checkerboard smile
I'd rather boast a scarecrow on my sleeve to guard my heart
Than to ward off evil spirits with a jagged smile, in vain
I'd rather have night weighing on the roof that I lay under
Than to feel the open air and open hands that lick my flame
When I finally succumb
When I stain your ceiling purple
You'll stare up, in stupid fear
While I spread, as though
Sinister and spiting
In such a useless form
I'm smiling in vermilion flame that was, but is not warm
I'll sputter like a deathly mobile
Trickling echoed refrains
To keep you far from sleep
Beside my true skeleton smile
I'll scorch a pale green ghost inside your eyelids
When you shut them tight
But, surely, it will dimmen...
As you fade into the night
