empty bodies buried in the past.
Yesterday, I watched
the leaves fall and rot by the paths we
used to walk; I remember the sickly
grey ghosts that haunted the backgrounds
of the pictures you used to give me and
how my eyelashes were violet from
bloodstained lies and blue
paint on your hands.
Yesterday, your hummingbird heart needed
three extra beats for every teardrop you
cried in the dead of night, I used to lie
on your chest and hear trains running
past at the speed of light instead of
fragile wing-flaps that I could cup
in my fingers.
Yesterday, the sun failed to show
his head and hung his head in silver
mist, covering his eyes with the clouds.
The birds neglected to sing and
our willows forgot to weep for
us as you turned the world on its
head; rolling sideways like a marble
escaped from its track.
Yesterday, i realised you would
not live to see tomorrow.
(today, my soul is withering in my empty chest,
robbed of any value.)
:iconxswan-songx:XSwan-SongX 21 3
i got drunk on the blue of your eyes again.
i.) yellow:
you are sick, I've caught you
vomiting in the downstairs
sink four times this week  (that's four times too many),
ribs jutting out from dying
canvas skin; maybe i'll play the keys
on your bones instead of playing your
sister's piano badly  (it makes you
smile sometimes, even though we both suck.)
still, i hold you even when
i feel like you'll
ii.) snap:
the elastic band on your left wrist is
terrifyingly loud as we huddle in silence
outside of hell, waiting for the devil to
hook you up to his various
machines. maybe it's my fault i
called him but there's plenty of
blame to go around in our house
(you broke my grandmother's
china last night again.
i broke your heart
when i re-made a second dinner
so I guess we're even.)

iii.) it's freezing.
i thought you were cold, but being
in this bed alone is makes my veins ice over.
(the devil took you away this time, and
he said you might not come back.)

(and honey, I've spent 8 days, 6 hours
:iconxswan-songx:XSwan-SongX 62 24
why did you gamble that night daddy? (remember)
winter tendrils
choked a child in the
back-room as they watched
the storms collide -
splintered wood and burning
fire steamed their father's
glasses (they saw the devil
in his soul that night)

and shaking hands could
not write fast enough to spill
the hurt, the lakes dried
up when they got a counsellor who
talked about magazines instead
of why parents gamble and why
they stole the other's credit card

(but most of all, please take away
the guilt they feel for not asking
him to stay home instead of playing

the smashed doors were rebuilt
but never opened to a child that
was just another statistic,
their parents think they don't
remember, remember, remember and
no-one ever says a word
(all the screaming goes on in their mind
and they all say it's in their head but
the head is a dangerous place)

memories do not settle and
melt on the ground like that winter's
frost; I've still got the ashes of
a dead child in he
:iconxswan-songx:XSwan-SongX 24 11
pretty mirrors reflect ugly lies.
we blended the cyan
heart of a jay bird
with the sight of a
silver mist at dawn;
cold, bittersweet and
always blue -
cerulean like my
Father's eyes when they
turned into ray guns
and burned though my soul
with disappointment -
we watched as
hurricanes buried their
roots in the ground like twisted
trees only they wanted to grow
right the way to hell but
i don't need to wait - you
gave me the tickets for
the fast-train.
the-knock-me-off-a-cliff-and-watch-me-fall express,
right on the hour of death.
(if I'm going to meet the devil,
then honey i'll see you there)

i snapped your pencils and
drowned them in ink,
water filling the gaping
mouths of your
drawings as the graphite
bled onto the floor,
wasting away,
I realised -
my soul is not your house to haunt

  Don't let the stars get in your eyes if you got water on the brain                                            It steams out your nose, it steams out your ears ,it steams out your eyes                               And pretty soon you percolate yourself to death
