Wicked, Little Monster

wicked, little monster


Wicked, little monster,

dancing on my heart:

two-step, jig, or tapping

tearing me apart.


Holding me for ransom

for a price I cannot pay –

wicked, little monster,

don’t let me die this way.


I beg only for the mercy

I know you have to spare,

wicked, little monster

see how you’ve laid me bare?


Wicked, little monster

can’t you see me bleed,

crumpled, beaten, shattered –

kneeling at your feet?
