my youth and my innocence were
auctioned away by myself, but it was
this so called desire that stripped it
away completely. my dreams, my
future, the light in my eyes, i traded it
all away for a bite of that fruit—a
rotten core that tastes like sugar and rust. 
taste it, this ugly ascension. who knew
that even though i escaped from reality, 
this dream would only become a 
nightmare? we were only a myth; you 
were only a demon. a sheep heading to 
the slaughterhouse—did you know that
was what you turned me into? i cannot
resist this temptation, a crackly crimson
candy and the chill of your fingers 
against my closed eyes. my conscience
was murdered by myself; my ambitions
were seized by the devil. drowned out 
in a storm of lust i was destroyed and
rebuilt into a puppet that lives only by
the tension in its gut. again i escape
from the screams strung from the harp
down below, forfeiting these numbered
days for one more taste of this hell. boy
severed from reality, he will lose the ability
to regret. he will fall from the sun. 

too bad, but it's too sweet
it's too sweet.

    gosh, I love this. I saw the title and immediately clicked. really interesting poetry - I think my favorite line would have to be "i traded it all away for a bite of that fruit—a
    rotten core that tastes like sugar and rust" ooooh
