Building Blocks

I built me back up
From my head to my toes
Painted on smile
Sellotaped nose

Palest of pale
Under reddest of rose

I built me back up
From my head to my toes

Darkest brown gaze
Blackening holes

Darkest black hair
Raven am I; and my stare

Salty, sordid air
Hence my presence here

Spiralling clouds cross
Dusty moonlight; a highlight

To pavement cracks
And scars hot to burst

Flaming tail like Cerberus
Bark and bite. Force and might

Eyes bigger than belly
More than had my fill

More than but a taste
More than a glimpse of the kill

Epitaph; last will and testament
Here lies the girl

Here lies her parts
Here lies the living dead
Here lies; here lies; her lies

I built me back up
From my head to my toes
Painted on smile
Sellotaped nose

A head; a nose
A scar; a rose

Wizened, withered and old
