stale and smelling gross

stale and smelling gross

there's part of me that no one sees or knows
and it's tasting rather stale and smelling gross
i think i'll let it sit and decompose

unnoticed in the dormant pose it chose
its whole existence sterile, comatose
there's part of me that no one sees or knows

it feigns futility off empty throes
as though its death were something grandiose
i think i'll let it sit and decompose

no matter whether poetry or prose
no matter whether poignant or verbose
there's part of me that no one sees or knows

it bores banality out hollow woes
expecting what gives birth to the morose
i think i'll let it sit and decompose

will you be watching when its old eyes close?
or are you too alive to get that close?
there's part of me that no one sees or knows
i think i'll let it sit and decompose
