Seaweed waves upon my hair,
an empty grave in a maggots lair.
The taste of death is what I crave.
Don't forget the pretty flowers on my grave.
I sleep under a sycamore tree, 
waiting for a miracle to rescue me

My days have been out numbered,
counting every link on my chain.
My guilt will cause you pain,
for laughing at my imperfection ways.

Alive and dead in this disease body called hell.
We are now connected, in a way I'll never tell.
Now I grin at the power you can't decline.
A forever gift that will rot down your spine.

The real question in my rhyme.
Is this curse yours or mine?

    gosh, I never expected to find one I had not seen before. But this one seems new to me. You express the distaste of this vile disease so well! thanks for my win, Irma. HOw come you don't want to go by that name I first knew you by? Also I am curious how you decided on your collaboration winners? did you go by your favorites including your own poem along with theirs or strictly by their writing? Did you go maybe by the ones that inspired YOU best to respond to them? Just curious. Seemed hard!
