Too Sweet

I think I’ll go blonde again. Suicide blonde.
Start wearing nothing but black clothing,
get tatted up & always wear boots

to tread through all the bullshit.

I’ll cut my hair in one of those feisty
forward bobs, wear silver crosses to
ward off demons

around me & in my head.

I’ll be some sort of defiant angel,
keep my eyes averted from love
or attraction,

& worry about my own fucking heart
for a change.
