Carnage had been prophesied since the day of her birth
Obliterate the evil, or else she would fail, and the world would burn
Many people tried to guide her, their interests, they felt, were the same as hers
Pulling her six different ways at once, she ended up pitting them against each other
Letting their division give her the room to find her own way
Everything was going well. The darkness was beaten back.
The final battle took place, and in the end, she was victorious
Everyone’s cheers turned to screams when she didn’t stop and began attacking them
Putting the food for today on her credit card
Or she would have, but it was denied like usual
Of course, that meant she was going to go hungry again
Really if it happened too much longer and she would get a meal at the emergency room
Bring the explosion of energy to the room
Obliterate any negative thoughts or emotions
Obscure the failings of the past with your positive shockwave
Make those around you rebuild with joy
Striking him across the face gave her satisfaction
Which brought all activity in the room to a halt
It caused him to hesitate to react to her attack
Pirouetting away from him, she stormed her way out
Everything had gone to plan. No one would question if she had stolen anything.
You bore me like no other person
And it’s amazing I can stay awake when we are in the same room
When you open your mouth, my mind shuts off immediately
Now if you weren’t my physics professor, I wouldn’t care…
Always there was a distance between them.
Could be living on different coasts, but it wasn’t.
Really it happened even when they were in the same room.
Oh, if they could just figure out a way to cross the gap
Such that all their dreams could come true.
So it was a tragedy when they settled for the next best thing.
Really need to get a bigger apartment
Or get rid of half of the stuff
Okay, maybe three quarters of it all
Maybe the apartment isn’t the problem
Hearth is happily crackling, telling a tale of mirth
Yielding a soft warm glow into the room
Gifting a cozy sense of calm and comfort
Grafting the coming season to your soul
Entombing negative feelings for another time, another place
Greg knew how to make quite an entrance
Radiating the machismo that defined 70’s porn stars
Allowing the room to take in his exposed furry chest
Nobody ever forgot that sight, ever
Despite paying their therapist many many ….
The room spun as he tried to stand up
Of all the nights, tonight was the night he had to drink the good stuff
Perhaps he should have allowed himself to bottom out instead
