Ever After

Ever After

Pan, old ugly friend
screams "You're alive!"
Retreat into familiar fairytales.
Witch  Waif  Warrior
Who emerges from the
cold dark water?
Disgusting wounds ignite
in the presence 

Making every effort to appear
normal, sincere
(not veering on the edge)
(not dangerously explosive)
"Don't mistake my weakness 
for that loathsome foe
we daren't name."
overwhelming homeostasis
Crawling, mewling on unswept floor
Unable to gain equilibrium enough
to walk away
Lock the door; hide behind barricades
made from
blood guts gore
human remains after they have
vermified, defiled
My core cries
"One sweet kiss.  A taste,
sense memory
stasis of desire."
I leap whole
into eternal fire
beyond pain; burning sensation
Pan smiles
