Crawling through the strands of a broken web
Teeth made of razor-blades
Sly thoughts falling to a pit, forgotten light.
Built to become, not to kill
Its many legs scissor expertly
Sewing up the wounds it created
Rebuilding the shrines that were destroyed.
A brain that won't rot
A body that wont die?
Immortal but now insane
Hands made to mend have slain.
Funny, those tales from long ago
The stories of trees that used to grow
Landscapes enveloped in snow
It misses it so.
Skittering through tunnels where vessels flew
Carrying their hurried crew.
Dutiful, like beasts of burden
It scans graffiti.
They wanted to be remembered. So does it.
Camera lens pan toward the smoggy sky.
Where are the ones that used to fly?
Perhaps all things must die.
Why does the world sleep
While it searches and creeps?
An orb of trust only yesterday was breathing
It wanted us to live but it wanted us to be still
Careening through the ruins
Chased by demon

I am tired of being open. And I'm tired of sharing. And I'm tired of being analyzed. And I'm tired of The Process.
I am learning to hold the millions of pieces of me together and haven't had a switch in months so why must I share?
I am learning that I don't need meth when I'm only one person in a newly happy life. So why must I shout it to the world?
