keep your darkness in the pockets of your tee shirt.
tame your demons before they strangle you.
you must tuck your troubles in an envelope and seal it with a smile.
don’t you cry loud now, the others are dressing their tears.
come, dip your fears in cologne now my darling.
you must learn the art of soliloquy.
There is too much darkness for yours to be noticed, considered even.
nobody cares unless you’re pretty or dying.
Set your table, dine with the devil.
drink of his cup, heed not his words
darkness is here, be very afraid.
Take a chill, now the pill.
