I Will Kill You in Your Sleep



I used to be

So beautiful

And now whenever I look

My face is all crinkled up

And soggy beyond repair


And my heart feels



I don’t know how I can manage to hold it up anymore


I asked an old man to help me

And all he did was hand me skin cream and an oddly shaped T

As if a symbol of death

Could guide me through life


But I did what he told me

I got on my knees and prayed

And I was answered with both kindness

And a smack in the face
