you still got
a heart that beats in halves?
a mouth like a bear trap,
don't kiss me -

that anchor tattoo
on your foot, it still holding you
down to the earth?
that skull on your chest,
you still dead in there?
i told you i wouldn't
disappear again,
but i kept my eyes fixed
on the exit,
and if i'm being honest
i lied,
i spoke in the tongue of my own,
i was out of that door like a shot
what a buzz -
a hive full of angry words,
queen of the nest
full of hate but the honey is
sweet when you smoke them
all out of the way,
get them drunk get them
talking and
leaving my mouth
in swarms

(hope it stings)

I love how you build up from one line to the next. It's like traveling through a dark forest. You never know where you'll end up.

If I could borrow your muse for just a day, my life would be made.
