twelve months


the dark hair
heart of despair
spiteful smile
so fucking clever

you were always noncomittal
every time i died a little
praying that one time
i'd die forever

a mystery man
with soothing hands
dried my throat and
i couldn't swallow

with faux connections
i ripped out my affection
gave some to everybody
until i was hollow

you wanted to save me
even though they'd be
disgusted by
your stupid tag lines

a fucked up tape player
telling stories of layers
stuck on fast-forward
that would never rewind
