slithering along

dragging a half~eaten

lump of flesh behind me


fallen from inside me

where the love used to live

i claw through stone


handful after handful

of cold death~dirt

i cast behind me


my only light

the fading glow

of my flickering passion


my way barred

i tear fingernails loose

ripping the hinges off

releasing a powdery stench


bugs crawling

through my hair

licking my brain


i slide inside

pulling the cold heavy cover

of darkness over me


singing sweetly to myself

as i lie there

forever rotting in despair
