A Poem by Lacuna Badtz

Waiting and watching the cobwebs form.


Eyelashes, like spider legs.

I feel them creeping across my eyelids

as my head starts to droop, without a speck of grace.

A shot of awareness smacks me across the face.

I cannot fall asleep just yet.

The glass of wine

safety pinned to my hand

would fall to the floor and stain.

The spilt red mess, like blood,

would make this room resemble

a murder scene;

not like it didn't already

reek of something grim.

I place my glass upon a web covered table.

Uncross my fishnet kissed legs and

stumble to the stairs.

I look upon the messy hair

that covers your drooling face.

I will leave you passed out

upon your basement floor.

I will let you waste

amongst the dancing spiders

who decorate the boxes upon boxes

that hoard your living space.

You said you were leaving.

You said you were coming.

I am heading off to bed

to sleep alone.

I cant help but feel that you wrote this at the moment it happened. You write from the heart, mind, and soul. I feel your neglection, and sympathize with it. Great job, as always...

I don't write poetry but I really liked this one. Very mysterious.

I really like this, this has a good sense that these two were in a relationship and she is better of to handle her liquor rather then them, but it almost seems sweet and misunderstood, I really like it.
