Jul 2010
The magic never happened last night
Upon all of the bright stars I wished
For new legs that refused to collapse beneath me
Instead I just acquired a new plight.

Shooting through the entire body
The pain that reeks from each nerve
Penetrates through my each of my tentacles
Each ache bends around the body’s curves.

God refused to listen to my pleas
Of begging for a life of normalcy
As I was only twenty three
But the crippled me arose so broken.

Handicapped and loveless,
Nothing allows relief for this ravenous disease
As it rapes and plunders through frail wings
Leaving its victims a *****, skinned kneed mess.
