Monkey bars
Hold on
Do not let go

I climb high
To hold you close
But it takes all my strength
So I let go
Bryn Kennell Jul 2020
Geese fly away
She ran away
Like stars from the day
When darkness fell
She made a wish on a cattail
Bryn Kennell Jul 2020
Body mirror my heart
You found me in the dark

Broken pieces
Distort an image

Body a reflection
You rearranged as yours

Lyrics of pain
A song so dark

She had no shield
Inhaled the words
Right into her heart

Melody severed
Just danced along
A tree in the wind
Enslaved to the song in her head
Bryn Kennell Jul 2020
She is light
Empathy like sunshine
Determined to permeate through every living being she encounters
Gentle, soft, and warm
But oh can she ever burn

Unexpectedly she will set and become darkness
Appreciating her only at her best
Many a creature who once bathed in her light
Flee into hiding
Hurt, sorrow, rage

Little do they know
At her darkest is when she needs them most
She grows cold

Little does she know
Darkness is a deadly place
For those who stick around
Bryn Kennell Jul 2020
If you take my heart
Please leave my lungs
For I will run
Till I'm out of breath
And can barely whisper
"Please love me"
