I burn alive with rage
I douse the flame with my tears
I silently sing with joy
Welcome now, new year

Welcome now, new year
schizoauthoress: (A Spark in the Dark)
Half-asleep, I can feel the strings

even my fingers flexing are a fascination

and I don't want to wake up

Awake is when people ignore me

Belittle me

Disbelieve

But the worst is when they ignore me

So I would rather

Sleep

And there won't be a charming prince

or princess

To wake me with a kiss

But that's all right

The skin I'm in doesn't fit me anyway.

There's a snake in my head --
Twisting, bright --
He sinks his fangs into my brain,
I shriek, and my perception
convulses --
everything takes on sharp edges
the dark encroaches
where it's not wanted
nor needed
I am unheeded
Unheaded -- beheaded -- the snake
Slithers out
the hole of my neck --
And dances out a cursive signature
in the welter of gore
I bear his mark --
I'm art.

I don't have a single favorite line of poetry, not the way that my favorite poets write, but here is my favorite excerpt from Anne Sexton's Courage:

"Later,
if you faced the death of bombs and bullets
you did not do it with a banner,
you did it with only a hat to
cover your heart."



The full text of the poem (with a spelling error in at least once stanza, unfortunately), can be found here: 'Courage', at plagiarist.com
