Sugar Leech I


Sugar Leech small and dark


Soft and damaged to our eyes


But hard inside


With all the bothers


That were someone else's fault.


Some would have kept her


Sure they could make it alright


Her dragging them down


With dependant hooks


To a place I really believe


She made for herself


Out of all the trouble


We would not spend


Ourselves in making.


A night time scare for Sugar Leech


The door she left unlocked


Like all the rocks walked into


Those two steps away could see


She'd done with open eyes


To cry us into her victim hole.


Spinning moods half her age


She went away to hate us all


Fake noose a necklace of attraction


To feed again


On someone new.

Flower Looked Through My Window


That summer flower looked through my window


I was cold


My dancer's body, skin close to bone


A face on a stem


The noises at night


Bed cold and sharp as my limbs cut into it


Voices I'd lay and wait for


Stay in my head in day time jeering


Ground and air rough around me


Only pain keeping me awake


If I fell no one would save me


I had to save myself


And if I fell I would break


Then time to lay again


The outside got in


Crowd buzzing inside


Through holes as I was fading


How could I eat


With a belly closed and sour with anger


If it was vanity that would be easy


As you look through foggy eyes


Listen to me


Just let me sleep.
