i watch with satiated interest as her hair runs golden
i watch with satiated interest as her hair runs golden in the halo of light
but within the angled corners
but within the angled corners and shadowed alcoves
but within the angled corners and shadowed alcoves, it seems almost
how nice would a cup of hot cocoa taste
with eyes for marshmallows
with eyes for marshmallows and the bones for a mug.
how would it look
how would it look, to have her skin as a rug?
I wonder where I went wrong
I wonder where I went wrong to have your face frozen in a shadow of horror
isn't this normal?
maybe I lost myself when I killed my love
my thoughts and understanding
oh don't be so
oh don't be so condescending.
let me tell you a secret
I'm the noise that startled you awake at night
I'm the scratch along the floorboards
the creak in the walls
the creak in the walls, the rub against your blanket
the cold fingers crawling up the knobs of your spine.
tell me now
will you sleep tonight?
