I would die tonight if it wouldn't break your heart
I would swallow down all the hate and shame,
Pill by pill,
Sip by sip,
Until nothing remained, but the bottom of the glass ,
And the empty pill container.

I would lay myself across the floor,
In the path of the moon beams,
Waiting for the Great Mothers eye to find me.
Scoop me up,
And carry me into the wind.

And in the morning.
When the sun rose, and the light hit my corpse,
I would shine, for the very first time.
But I cant
Because your heart would break.
I wont carry that with me tonight.
Why is poetry dying
when we still have the gift?
If we still have water
then we still have a ship.
We can sail to the places
these words take us.
We are still shaken
by the words that make us.
Why should we let poetry die
when there is so much to explore?
If only people read it
and discovered more.

It's a sad world
that we defend
using tweets
instead of prayers
instead of stairs
to calm
the nightmares
Sleeping used to be such a treasure

hiding in the dark
a retreat to solitude
the trees hold my hand

are the ink
for the pen
a poet uses
to write
- L.M.
say i'm fine
thats a lie
but i will be
that just takes time
for now i guess
we'll just be friends
gotta embrace the end
and learn where your boundaries begin
Couldn't wait to see you
Then when I did
I wondered why
Meeting you was an accident,
You are the scar
I never want to heal from.
