ativan boy, you cannot empty out this skull -
not with a pen nor with a bullet. you can
be my hallowed head(case) for spitting out
words like teeth; oh, but i will only love you
when you're weary. i will keep crows caged
between your lungs like veins, like palpitations.
i will rot you through bones & car radios,
but i will never get (you) out of your skin.
full title: i only love the mayhem, baby; i am made of nights like these

whoops, i went almost two weeks without writing and came back with this sub-par stuff. sorry.

Fantastic imagery in this. In fact, fantastic imagery in all your pieces. You bring visuals so clearly and sharply to the mind with your words. It's amazing.

I think that I am not the only one who got shivers.

That's kind of a personal one for me, and I'm actually very glad someone else can relate to or at least understand it. Thank you.

I really, really appreciate this - again, thank you.
