bones
white
bleached in the sun
in the ground
in dust
and to dust we shall return
under the earth
beneath the soil
beneath your shirt
your so thin flesh
beneath my hand
that holds you
my turn
to take care of you
as i have been cared for
for me to walk alone
i am strong enough
i told you
love
goodbye
hoping you would know
ready to let go
release
pain
escape
you asked for it
i didn't understand
and all you did was hit
one button over and over
escape
return to origin

metal bones
frame
of the hospital bed
out of place
doesn't make sense
in our home
isn't fair
why us
why me
why you
why pain
for us all
too many tears
torn
out of breath
whispering
memories in my dreams
your face
voices never to be heard again
silent
no words
in the end
the drugs
they took you away
your pain away
you weren't you
and she wept
the screaming aching ripping sound
of her
loss
of emotion
clinical
cold and hard
bones

"yes, but have you not heard? ugly is the new beautiful. like the way you always seem to pry at my thoughts and know what i'm thinking; the way you make me talk when i really don't feel like parting my lips and lying to you. it's just like the cyanide and razor blades i keep in my medicine cabinet, waiting for the day when i master the definition of defeat." "then we are the most beautiful thing in the world, because we are spending our days chewing on gunpowder and wilted roses. i spent ten minutes this morning carving your name on the inside of my thigh; somehow, replicating that pain makes me think

When I was young, so very, very young, I was deeply in love with fans, propellers, windmills. I remember having these tiny little miniatures in plastic, with the most biting colour combinations; green-purple, red-yellow; and I'd just sit there, blowing, and merrily watch the fins swirl around. And when I first saw cogwheels and screws and crankshafts and eggwheels I floated amidst the gorgeous sorcery. I wanted to find out all about machines; how they where, through what and by which they stood, why they turned. What that meant. My father bought me a huge book, I read it. Didn't care about the text, I just looked at the pictures ov

She wrote me: This is the time of all things read; the time of books, clean hands, straw dogs, shared looks. This is the time that finds the time to settle down; to open that smile with enormous plans; to pound on metal rolled with rust; to lie when lovers lie, alone, quiet, in kitsch and style. She wrote me: Death for some is a careless cat, one that lacks a voice—and love— and never plays chess. But that is not my choice. You see, I prefer the quieter sort; the kind of death that stalks one through shapeless blur, a caress of trust and a lack of breath—now three, now two— a sweet bluff and a face that
