I told myself I would be better tomorrow
Wake up
Achieve

Told myself I would be more human
Less shadow
Live

I told myself I was worth it
To succeed
Rejoice

Told myself I could do it
Still lost
hollow
Mary Elizabeth Apr 2020
The forest rains on me
While I gently stroll
filling my lungs
painting me yellow

The forest rains on me
Green ornaments on silky threads
Cascading fans from the tree tops
Shedding pollen threads on my head
Mary Elizabeth Mar 2020
I am what you love
Only when I’m what you want.

Losing me
For you.

Dylan Thomas
Do not go gentle into that good night,
Old age should burn and rave at close of day;
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Though wise men at their end know dark is right,
Because their words had forked no lightning they
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Good men, the last wave by, crying how bright
Their frail deeds might have danced in a green bay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

Wild men who caught and sang the sun in flight,
And learn, too late, they grieved it on its way,
Do not go gentle into that good night.

Grave men, near death, who see with blinding sight
Blind eyes could blaze like meteors and be gay,
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.

And you, my father, there on that sad height,
Curse, bless, me now with your fierce tears, I pray.
Do not go gentle into that good night.
Rage, rage against the dying of the light.
Mary Elizabeth Jun 2017
I've borrowed your tears.
Stolen from your word, your fears.

To fill this hole,
Deep in my soul.

My brain tells me to feel,
But is any of this real.
Mary Elizabeth Jun 2017
I loved you.
Once upon a time.

I would like to think
You loved me too.

It's over now.
As are we.

No tears are shed
'Cause we had fun.

I loved you.
Once upon a time.

And I would like to think
You loved me too.
Mary Elizabeth Jan 2017
Apparently,
I drink whiskey;
On ice.

Not fancy ice.
Just ice.

Double on the rocks,
Please.
