If I never wake,
lay beside my fresh
corpse and keep
me warm. Guard me
from the creepy
crawlies who want to
drag my soul, with
their sticky toothpick
arms, away from my
rightful place, next
to you. Sing me haunted
lullabies to keep me
high on my sorrow.
Promise me you'll
love me as long as
the stars twinkle
in the tragic, thin
twilight air.

It turned to really sweet and sterotypically loving to dark and creepy. I loved how you actually incorprated dying in this poem. Well done.

Honestly, I don't know what to say about this poem. It's a bit creepy, but all the best poems are. Your work keeps surprising me, even if the titles give me hints. Keep surprising me, I like it.
