2. death dances; melancholic

 

no mother; no father,

only a vulture to watch

as i lay dying.

 

a hand reaches out,

my own?

grab the bones,

dry, dusty, sand.

 

death dances melancholic.

didn’t you hear me?

i said no.

get your claws away.

 

feel too sick to vomit;

like the sound of

my lover insulted, scorned.

protect with my life.

 

i wish you would protect with yours;

 

please…

don’t let them win

death dances; melancholic.

please don’t look at me that way.

 

it hurts not to help.

hurts like the bones;

crushed between my fingers.

splintered; greenstick cut.

 

blood and sand,

i’m drowning…

forgot to swim;

the sharks still remember.

 

look at my hand;

i crushed those bones for you.

you’re not looking…

the vulture still waits.

 

death dances;

melancholic.

 

she can’t have me.
