she-devils lend me their smiles;
all the other ones i have
are tearing at the seams

all that's left of me is
black ink & blacker blood
mixed with the bitter
smell of rubbing alcohol

                                                   but she still snakes her arms
                                                   around the nebulae collapsing 
                                                   in my freckled lungs
                                                   because she thinks i am half-full

                                                   i don't have the heart to tell her
                                                   that i've only ever been 
                                                        half empty
today i'm feeling half-empty

I instantly thought of the Black Dahlia when I read the first stanza. :heart:

Not sure why, but this is what came to mind. It might be due to my obsession with American Horror Story and how they portrayed Elizabeth Short through one of their episodes.
