I Like U Better Dead

i like peeling away the fleash
eating the good parts and leaveing the rest
scratched out those diving eyes
got sick of sorting out ur lies
finnaly forgave you bled
noticed i like u better dead
crack the ribs, crush the heart
stuff you, sow you, pull u back apart
ugly on the outside
pretty on the inside
so i search for pretty
and didnt find any.

A great tribute to Margaret Fuller and her struggles.
some pathetic tone Around the storm-tost vessel sinking there The wild waves chant thy dirge and welcome home; //// great writing - all around Survives alone thy ’s valiant plea
