'Twas the nightmare before christmas'Twas the nightmare before christmas, and all through the town,
Not a goblin was stirring, not even a louse.
The pumpkins were hung by the fence with care,
In hopes that king Jack might soon be there.
The monsters were hiding all under the beds,
While visions of dead things danced in their heads.
And the witch in the woods, and ghosts in the house,
Had just settled down for a long winter's nap.
When out on the hill there arose such a clatter,
Sally snuck from the lair to see what was the matter.
Away to the field she ran with a flash,
And hid by a pumpkin at the back of the patch.
The moon with an eerie haunted glow,

As if we will find home in this pursuit of happiness...
but we only enclose each other in small rooms
with nothing but old laptops.
How many times I've guessed which letter could it be...
Which letter could it be?
To free us from havoc-stricken-thoughts?
They come and go, unending like 24 hour subway stations.
There's no break for this lonely man,
heaving every breathe of stale air
into my overused lungs...
Living in confined walls of flesh
held up with brittle paper-mache bones.
Which day is it that I will burst out from this cage of a life?
And hover with the Gods found in carefully binded bo
