I would drain the sea
                      extinguish the sun
                                  flood the desert
If it meant seeing you smile even for just a moment
I wrote this poem for one person but it ended up being for you
missing you when
you are here
that's the worst way
to have it

isn't it?
The poison of pride
Once it is made
Cuts quick to the bone
Runs thick through the veins

As it permeates
The seen and unseen
Looks to devour
Every ounce of the being

One drop at a time
Takes from the essence of life
Ruins the heart and the mind
The poison of pride
