Happy to be alive
Amongst mangled, skeletal remains,
In the afterthought of life…
Lost in ambiguity,
Life gushing through severed veins.
Happy to be alive,
Happily undone and undead -
Like a chapter unfinished,
Like a letter that was never read.
I bask in your toxic existence,
Reminiscent of ash and dust;
I flirt with the dark shadows,
And watch love evaporate to lust.
I chase swirls of blackened smoke
And follow you into the unlit road,
I see a monster in the mirror…
I am exactly what you showed.
