Summary

The night is cold and bleak is composed of verses

that explore the mysteries of

love, shattered humanity, life, and 

a fling 

with Death.

I hunger

I hunger for things that have a soul

If you have one, I will eat you... 

I know a woman

who, in order to breathe, writes a line or two

of poetry

I also know a man

who dances, naked

in the moonlight

with the ghost

of his beloved

I ate them.

I hunger for things that have a soul

and I am starving

Because when I show

the world

a beautiful

red rose


they only

see

the thorns.

I killed myself

I killed myself

a thousand times
in fiction
so that

I could face

this life

without losing

my Soul.
