"what she said, 'i smoke as i'm hoping for an early death, and i need to cling to something' it's what she said..."--smiths

for a friend's suggestion


so what's the difference,
my skin is bad anyway
so i'll light up again
still looking young beyond
these years
(for a while,
until these graces fail me,
and i'm just the same as
everyone else)
so i'll hide behind the
guise
when i must avert my gaze
for it hurts to look, sometimes,
and this cloud does mask
the discomfort in my path
and put you further out of sight:
i'm blindsided,
nearsighted
at the opposite end of that bar
again...

Beautiful C.

Love this: i'm blindsided,
nearsighted
at the opposite end of that bar
again...

In response:
