Killing Tinkerbell

Poem By Nellekke Tak

And her lips die quick and cold beneath my own
They tremble still,
and her eyes won't close
But you're not here,
because i was never there
She's walking next to him
That was me,
but you've gone silent
I could never make you smile that way
and I can't be him
I can't save what was and what is
I can't
Sleepless, why are you so cold?
I won't let him have you the way i did

Wake up please don't leave again
I can't stand to see you go
I'm not him and I'm not here
I was never there
You're not breathing
You're not mine

Sugar and caffeine are now my drugs of choice
So easily accessible with loose pocket change
But you, my nicotine,
Are a lover I shall bring first hand to the plane

finding yourself entangled between clouds
only fog in the distance
making it to see the end

I Put A Spell On You...Because You'Re Mine

Infected by a climactic awe
A young room contaminated by a spurred moment
An expectance of invitation
There is no ardor

Old Scratch The Serpent

What have I done,
To bathe these disturbances
The swirl of pretty pink everything
Bouncing along the tile of everyplace in town
