Through the corpse

By Razor-kissed-wrists

 Blood and goo, 
drip and ooze
Out of every orifice

Holes form 
as the body begins
to decompose

It rots, gets a putrid smell
bugs lay their eggs
larva starts to grow

Her brain turns to liquid
worms wiggle out of her 
empty eye sockets

In her navel 
sprouts a rose
Where death happened, beauty grows.

    Hey, have you heard "Where the Wild Roses Grow"? by Nick Cave? Your work strongly reminded me of that song. Love and murder, beauty and death. Good work!

    fantastic... death, a murder maybe... then a flower from the decay... we always return to what we are worth... food for the worms, essence for the earth... write on
