A poem

For better or for worse

That's what they say

You play me like that last note

Of that one song you can't get out of your head.


Trapped in an endless loop

Lyrics so old

Waiting for the next melody

Of better days to come.


Hearts collapsed

Salty blue's

Peeking behind the curtain

You see the truest of true's.


Eating out of your hand

Like a dog to its master

Dissoriented feelings

Your vice,

My price to pay.


Enveloping sense of something coming

Is it good or bad?

Who's to know.


Liquorice lips

And satin sheets

A cover

For your narcissistic core.


Cancer of the cosmos

Rotting and consumed

Prankster of the heart

Forever and always

The Joker to my Harley.


Twisted Love.
