(Pre-Script: This poem is meant to be read as the song, "Keep Breathing," #24 on the playlist, plays in the background. Go down to the playlist, click on that song, then come back and resume reading. I'll wait...) (...still waiting...)

Let's face it

(or don't face it, if that's easier)

no one wants the cure

we all just want the leprosy.

No one wants to wake up,

we all just want to dream through it

and believe that we're happy,

smiling as our fingers bleed and our flesh

is eaten away

one nasty gash at a time.
