Hello again,
Darkness, My friend.
“How do you do?”
Oh, I’m fine, thank you…
Do you remember,
how we used to play together?
You would push me over
You’d laugh; I’d cry.
I remember the long nights we spent
cuddled and twisted together
Wrapped in a blanket of ice.
You sickened me,
Then you comforted me.
This is the hole I crawl in to
My cave,
When the cold comes.
                                                               I sink back into myself.
Ever so slowly
Your fingers creep up over my skin
And rest on my shoulders,
weighing me down.
I resist, at first; I cry out and shy away
And then I remember
                                      So familiar
I fall into your arms like a lovers embrace
Sighing softly,
As you carry me home on
                 Midnight wings
My old friend
        I have missed you.
I look out at the world
From beneath eyes lidded with sadness.
the pain echoes within me
A hollow drum.
Climbing up over my back
Reaching down my throat
Grasping my heart
                         So tight you pull
I cannot breathe
Oh, here it comes.
You pool in my belly like thick syrup
Once seemingly so sweet.
                                     sour and putrid.
Your scent is trapped in my nostrils
I try to scratch you out.
Screaming, I am being dragged down,
down, down
Go to sleep, my sweet…
The morning will come
First you must greet me properly,
         For I am
                A forever.
