Chemicals are essential to function,
Be it control or destruction.
I crave entropy—
The bright points of my dull catastrophe.
A red necktie to stain my shirt and skin.
Love, doom. The only things I find hate in.
Love burrows into you like a starving invertebrate,
Peels back the shell to proliferate.
Made from stars and just as far,
The light I snuff is the light you are.
I apologize for the creature inside your heart.
There is nothing else left of me, that’s the only part.
Keep it safe if you please.
It will die off soon, like a disease,
Just a little abnormality.
I apologize for the creature I left inside your heart.
I’m trying to recreate it with art.
Remember what I left of me in others,
Little things I left behind to discover.
When I leave and close my eyes,
I want something for those of you left behind—
A little creature in your heart to remember me by.
