Blue Murder

Reach me with your eyebrows
Scratch my skin with your blue
Cover my face with your pupils
Brand my body with your bloodshot.

Sleeping is never easy.
 Uncovered, moonlight and maze.
Shut down, darkness
and nothing.

Wake up.
Now is the time.
Have to go.

Ready to die.
Get it done.

A neat murder.
One glimpse is enough.
