death is a grunge kid from seattle (from the top-daily post)

poem

Today, write about any topic you feel like — but you must reuse your opening line (at least) two more times in the course of your post.

a comfortable nightmare

floated above and behind like a taunting balloon

buoyant with cynicism while serpent strings

allowed for the chosen to meet fates with burdens tied on wrists

 

dark cloak with pale skin and rejected eyes pleaded to be befriended

a comfortable nightmare

wailing soundtrack of hissed lyrics and screaming guitars

deafened the cracked bones and moans from the mosh pit

 

hades finally had its head banging holiday

the awkward were accepted and Loved

a comfortable nightmare

slept sound to listen to the story

 

kissed fingertips as the last page turned

wiped the others’ tears of misunderstanding

unbridled passion lying in the embrace of the rejected

a comfortable nightmare
