I Wanna Be Your Monster

I Wanna Be Your Monster

I wanna be your monster
– your undead lover.
Lay me on your slab
– not undercover.
Up in your lab
– I’ll be the best monster
– you’ve ever had.

True my bolts are rusty
– and my stitches itch.
That’s nothing my good
– mad doctor can’t fix.
Strap on the electrodes
– flip the switch
– turn up the voltage
– till I jerk and twitch.

Thunder in your ears
– lightning in the sky.
The castle is on fire
– but my love won’t die.
Pitchforks and torches
– as the flame scorches.
Escape I cannot allow
– – I’m your monster now.

eyes, lips, revealed

it is spring. some bug has bit me, which in no way excuses the following…

eyes, lips, revealed

i have never seen so many eyes.
so many lips.

lips that want to be kissed.
eyes closed then kissed open.

eyes round. round and down.
into the ground.

eyes that want to fly,
fly into the sky. up.

doors closed are now open.
opened up.

a new smile is reveled.
and then removed [sigh]
such is life.

again [sigh]

so many eyes…
and then,
opened again.
and again.
