I'm just standing here-
A puddle of my own human thoughts
A plain-jane nobody;
I fade out through nights.
I dance alone in my curdled youth
To no-nothing tunes.
I leave my heart-
Just carrion to feed lovers in the dark.
I play with crows,
My only friends-
Their pecks are kisses on the cheek
I hold feelings in big brown paper bags
And drink emotions like tears-
They make me weak.
I sit unaccompanied in the shadows-
Restless so I'm wide awake-
With no need for any elation,
You killed what use to make me spark.
