The Current State of Monsters

I tattooed you behind my eye lids
so I can see you while I sleep
the darkest dreams come from unrequited agony
Splintering the soul
cold and resolute
Dead flesh on a warm body
bending in the mortuary
when love is only irony
what better mockery
than trysts with blue lips?
I’m a spider web
hearing your whispers on silky threads
whispers of life to steal.
Vampires on Valium and Vicodin,
sucking morphine through the vein of addicts
Even the monsters are sedated.
We’ll string them out in motel rooms
with snowy TV screens explaining misery
in an Iphone ad
White noise and scabbed ears
you stopped making sense
when I sewed your lips shut
You can only live once
but I can die over and over again
that’s why they say that hell is repetition
and we’re all living in it
with the daily shopping queues
text messages to lovers
who are fucking your friends
while watching re-runs of the Real World
Status update
They say that jaws and claws are scary
I think the terror is wired
plugged into the world
but you always told me I was the devil
so I should know the root of pure evil
And when I close my eyes
you’re still watching me
