happily drowning, we

Our sweet dream world
Where we, the wild things, are
Wolves in people clothing
Monsters are we

The sky above us is black
Like our hearts
Although moonlight filters through the trees
Shining down onto our changing, writhing bodies
Witches are we

We do not wish to go
We eat each other up
Devouring every morsel
Piece by piece
Cannibals are we

Taken apart
And put back together
Tearing apart and gently holding
Savages are we

Terrible claws
Terrible teeth
Terrible sweetness
Terrors are we

Happily drowning
We pull each other under the surface of bliss and madness
Through a night and a day
Wild things are we
