My Darling Rose


Time to wake up
so hostile & dizzy

spinning round like rotten children underground

I've come to praise you, dear
still puzzled & sobbing

when I know your heart never makes a sound

open your eyes, love
somber & shaking

trust me, child
I'll never let you down

it's okay, love
follow me, love

I'm neither
horrid or soothing

crashing through the soul you finally found

*trust me*

the world won't be lost
broken or shattered

no need to keep dragging that futile cross

don't fret now
chaotic & jaded

Edens little whore even
loved & lost

scratch away those tears
don't feel
rejected or flattered

it's your bullshit drama with all the flaws

rest your head, child
defeated & conquered

just forget the pain you haven't lost

*trust me*

clutching my hand
way to
fragile & beaten

let me take you where the evil go to pray

you know I won't lie, Rose
still
unfocused & screaming

*remember that we wanted it this way*

take another look, Rose
it's so gorgeously woven

like angels cascading
madness & blasphemy

I'll carry you through hell, Rose

You'll always be so
fiercely addicting

just forget
we could have died
another day

** a note**

My darling Rose,

You'll dance until chaos, with all the shadows.
Across the face of death and halos.
I can't help it.
All I want to be is, your precious suicide.

Love,
The Madness

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
