Horror is a comfort, isn't it?
A break from both the real and the ideal.
Life comes in rainbow feelings, doesn't it?
Leave terror out, and don't feel all you feel.
Open up your heart to wonder's winter
Whispering of an untimely death,
Even as your well-worn worries whimper,
Each obsession going limp and limper,
Neck waiting for the thrill of icy breath.
