the tunnel

the tunnel

there is no light

in the tunnel

cloying sticky fingers reach

like so many barbs piercing flesh

black blood shining

like so much broken glass

reflected in the eye

there is no depth

in the tunnel

all float aimlessly

like so many feathers

tarred and seeping down walls

where is the ceiling

where is the floor

there is no end

to the tunnel

a vacuum

a void

an oblivion

do not stand still

in the tunnel

there are no human sounds

in the tunnel

for ray

THEY FALL…SKM…

image

when the days grow short
the night is long
shadows better hidden come out
stretching
ever seeking
hapless victims trudge
dragging iron feet upon their days
with closed eyes
there is no color here
there is no air
what secrets can the shadows tell
black is a color they scream
arms flailing desperately
oh no, no, no
it is not
a gaping vacuum perhaps
mildly considering
like lemmings they fall
yet still they advance
if idiots rule
are monsters so hard to comprehend
beauty is most often deadly
why don’t you know I scream

APPEARANCES

at times she speaks of joy
if that is what it is
tiny and insignificant moments
when he speaks
in riddles and rhetoric
yet her every sense is attuned
within his heady rhythm
facts are hard to come by
every truth fettered out
like a raw pearl
polished by time and misunderstanding
until it cannot be recognized
for anything real
this is real
she cannot speak
only stare
where in the fuck did this come from
she is no child
yet she is in awe and wonder
perhaps though
he is a vampire
because it all feels so very, very good
the delicious pain, the heat
the stickiness, the taste
she tilts her head back
exposing her neck
he does not hesitate

YOU MAGIC BY SKM…

image

she knows what she is
do you
did you tell the artist of her soul
and which colors to paint it with
did you decide how many stars
belonged in her eyes
do you know for whom they shine
did you try to define beauty
eyes closed
as her fingers memorized his face
his scars
do you know her wild heart
her deepest desires
her darkest fears
and are you willing
are you strong
can you walk beside her
do you believe
and can you believe
in magic

OR NO

he loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
he loves me not
hush
he loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
he loves me not
too much time to think
he loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
he loves me not
stay?
he loves me
he loves me not
he loves me
he loves me not
run?
he loves me
he loves me
not
