Eloisa
She loved and valued others
as exactly as they are.
Then proudly watched them as they changed to the truest and best versions of themselves.
Morning alarms
Baggy eyes
Wandering through
Dark caverns of life

Fallen leaves
Stoic trees
Journeys through blackness
And snowy clouds

Crisp crackly dawns
Overcoat walks
Firey coals
Pale faces

Flakes dropping
Frozen cheeks
Shovels scraping
Icy roads

Death is not pretty.
Death is not brave,
Death is not freedom
Or grace
Or clarity
Or glorious.
Death is lonely,
Undignified,  
And vastly disappointing.
I do not recommend you try it.
Hazy forest
A huge, solid snake slithers
betrayed by the grass

I hold you through
this current flows
Don't worry, just check-in,
it's just another wave

Hurting bones, pale skin,
I got a lump in my throat
It's nothing, you'll be fine,
I say underneath my breath

I had a dream that one day
you'd be bigger than me
Broad figure,
won't let people down,
you'd lift them up instead

Twenty-six and you
keep on shrinking
Turn that frown
upside down,
I know you're stronger than this

and I know you love your childhood clothes
we made plans to keep it
but now I hope
we can throw it away

because you're supposed to
fit in it no more
be like other people, grow
each and every day

I had a dream that one day
you'd be bigger than me
Broad figure,
won't let people down,
you'd lift them up instead

Twenty-six and you
keep on shrinking
Turn that frown
upside down,
I know you're stronger than this

We both know you're stronger than this

So please, be stronger than this
because you're stronger
than
this

Let's rob a bank
you, me, and a bits of help
call your gang
and the movie-man

let's throw all blacks
and wear some masks
maybe then they won't trace us
from the blurry vision of the gas

let's run and laugh
hit the ground and won't back down
hold each other's hands
while chased down by the red-blue lights

let's take the money
and throw the bag in the back of a shack
and we can have an adventure pack
in the middle of the sack

hey you,
let's rob a bank

and don't let me go
