practice makes perfect

watch me self destruct
watch me closely, but don't stand too near to me
explosive and bubbling over
spilling onto the floor... spilling onto myself... and you... and her
and i want to take your picture
and i want to make you something you are not
paint your face with powder so pale and liner so dark
and we dance way past midnight but we don't even talk
hands on smooth skin that belongs to myself
pressed against empty pants and voided lips
and we dance to the sounds of self destruction...
and we spin and we spin and we spin...
can't wait to fall down. can't wait to be done.
the dance is soon to be over... let me leave you dizzy - confused
when did the music stop?
when did she self destruct?
