Best Fiend Forever
and post notes and photos about your poem like Gregory R Barden.
Your 'friend'? Your 'bestie' ...
You KNOW her face like your own,
Know the many masks she wears -
The lovely guises she dresses in to seduce,
And the lies she whispers, sweet.
You know the world she has left in ruin,
Yet you invite her as you would a wish ...
Come in, you say ... welcome!
Let me tend your horrors,
Make me and mine your home ...
I want you to curse my comforts -
To kiss me, deep, and make it burn,
Mind my manias and melt my marrow ...
Course my veins like lifeblood ...
I want you to raze the ramparts of my castle,
Bring the walls down around me,
Rattle my lungs with death's consumption,
And dance in my skin like a scarecrow.
Oh, and if you please ...
If you pretty, pretty please ...
I will, quite sincerely ...
THANK you for it.
