they just  s     rm               out
like worms
even though
I grab them and
stuff
them kcab in their
dark nasty h0le
And
      Sit

And pretend to

FRUSTRATED!
and MAD
at myself for thinking
such bad
sQuIgGlY
hungry wanting
thoughts
while he sleeps peacefully
and he doesn't know
and he doesn't care
and
I
am
                           alone
