Witch - by Laura Dark


In the village live witches nine,
Three in worsted, three in rags, and three in velvet fine.

I Never Told You

i never told you
how your hair was a wreck
after we slept away the afternoon
kittens in the sun

i never told you
how goofy your laugh is
when you're living on passion-fruit rum
and chemical-joy

i never told you
how stupid you looked
waiting for someone to ask you to dance
instead of moving on your own

i never told you
i would still be holding your hand
if you'd just let me,
my butterfly

Instant Gratification

reach out
seize a reminder
anything to make you feel
pretty
anything to make you feel
anything at all
release your reservation
relax your muscles
forget your hesitation
arch into the ego
let her words
breathe your confidence

you'll call her again
six months from now

Sci-Fi Setting To A Fantasy Romance



you're the prettiest alien
i ever made love to
and my tongue still tastes
like your tendrils
starry-eyed
you were the super-nova
i'd always hoped for
every night
when polaris
came to play
i followed through your
galaxies
as long as i could
keep up
but you lost me
somewhere past neptune
and you just left me here
still floating

Mixed Tapes Are So High School

you're just a
stupid boy
with a
stupid mixed-tape

so why do all these
stupid songs
make me want to
kiss your
stupid face?

I Eat Souls Like Candy

Say It

I'm Trying To Think Of
Something
To Say
Something Witty
&
Cute
Something
That Might
Catch
Your Fleeting Attention
I'm Trying To Think Of
Anything
But Stuttering

It Isn't Working

Shaking Hands

(Hey, Hey)
She had her eyes on the prize as the girl next door
You grow up quick when you grow up poor
It's the only way to LA that she knows
The Hollywood pose: teeth, tits, and toes

It didn't take her long to leave the boulevard
So many Five Star friends with black credit cards
She'd try anything once
Cause anything goes
It never comes easy when you're digging for gold

(Hey, Hey)
Well she ain't no Cinderella
When she's getting undressed
'Cause she rocks it like the naughty wicked witch of the west
Far too pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Yeah she'd even break a promise in the promise-land
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands
She'd take your money make it twice as hot as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands

(Hey, Hey)
I doubt she'd even let the devil buy her little black book
City Hall would probably fall off if anyone got a look
Every A-List player is her favorite friend
Since they all taste the same in the back of the Benz
A congressman would call her every once in a while
Got the school girl skirt on the top of the pile
She'd done everyone once
And everyone knows
You got to get a little dirty when you're digging for gold

(Hey, Hey)

Far to pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Yeah she'd even break a promise in the promise-land
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands
She'd take your money make it twice is hot as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands

Well someone spilled the beans and now her name's in the press
Tough to keep it all a secret when you're one of the best
The judge is going easy because he paid for her chest
Yeah he loves little naughty wicked witch of the west

Far to pretty to be giving it cheap
That's why she's making six figures working three days a week
Yeah she'd even break a promise in the promise-land
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands
She'd take your money make it twice is hot as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands
She'd take your money make it twice as hot as anyone can
She didn't make it this far by just shaking hands

B E L I E V E

I'm trying to believe
That love is more than
Trading lies
Taking turns breaking hearts
Imagining forever
And knowing it's make-believe
I'm trying to believe-
But I'm no Cinderella.

The Un-Anonymous Conquest

i will not
be lost
in your haze
of
pretty
little
girls
in the fog
of
glitterotic
scene
queens
in the labyrinth
of
impressionable
youth

i will not
be forgotten
in your acid-trip
horror film
in your nightmare
montage
in your
porno
thriller

i will stand up
among the
notches
in your belt
and i alone
will remind you-
i have a name

The Seduction Of The Sun- by SPRINGHEEL

L U C I D



you come and go
eyes open
eyes close
did i find you in the dream
or in the waking?

your voice doesn't sound
the same
as it used to
rougher now
like you've been smoking
where did you come from?
where did you go?

ask me again
if i remember
where you hid
your reality
maybe
after a caffeine injection
it'll come back to me

i was talking in my sleep again
that's what they tell me
that's what they say
i'm afraid
your name tumbled out
of my lucidity

The One Who Got Away

I can't help thinking maybe you were the one who asked
If there was such a person
But no.
I know better.

Now I can't help dying a little,
Knowing you read my answer
And that you'll still
Never know
It was you.

Fashionable Antiquity


tell me what you would've done
at my age
how you would've felt

broken hearts are never in style

glass grace
imagined poise
save face
forget the little boys

broken hearts are never in style

i guess i'm not vogue'ing.

This is Captain Spaz-tastic.
He is fantastic.
He is also furry, adorable, cuddly, and a total ham!
And bonus points- he's much better behaved than his big brother.

The Gypsy's Lament

worth measured
in page-views
we are only as beautiful as they say we are

images so still
and so sparkling
do i take your breath away?

stare
a little longer
remember me for what i could be

i traveled
my little circle
but here i stay

This is my little Don Juan,
Maxwell Demon, aka Max Panda.
He hates having his picture taken,
but he LOVES to cuddle.

With Involuntary Love

Dear Anonymous-

Your picture pops up everywhere I turn, every web-page I open, every photo I see... I'd forgotten how beautiful you are... I hate it.

Get out of my head. Get out of my life.

I can't get away from your image, your glistening eyes, no matter how hard I push, and it makes me want to fucking cry.

JUST DISAPPEAR ALREADY.

I had high hopes you would be a flash in the pan; that after a year or so, I'd never have to hear your name, see your shattered scars, wish for you on every penny, star, raindrop, and tunnel.

But no.

Our friends still insist on updating me on everything you do. They show me all your new pictures, let me know whose bed you're sharing now.

I DON'T WANT TO HEAR IT.

I don't care anymore... You've made it perfectly clear that you don't care about me...

So please, just stop. Don't email me, don't drunk-dial me, don't tell so-and-so to tell me you say hi, just don't. Just walk away.

And don't let the door hit your perfect little ass on the way out.

With involuntary love,

Me.

Rock This Way


i'm a mother-fucking rockstar,

and if you don't like it,
turn off the radio.
