You live in the wrong place
and now is your chance to run
It doesn’t matter
that 58 seconds isn’t long enough
to find your wedding album
or your son’s favorite blanket
or your daughter’s almost completed college application
or your shoes
or to gather everyone in the house.
It doesn’t matter what you had planned.
It doesn’t matter who you are
Prove you’re human.
Prove you stand on two legs.
-Lena Khalaf Tuffaha
When I was a child I thought
The new moon was a cradle
The full moon was granny's round face
The new moon was a banana
The full moon was a big cake.
When I was a child
I never saw the moon.
I only saw what I wanted to see.
And now I see the moon

If I could write until the inspiration left me
For you I would
If I could write to change your mind
We could go back and it’d all be fine
If I could write to make your smile stay
Oh you know me I’d be done already
If I could write about the sparkle in your eye
You know I’d try
If I could write until I can no more
I know you’d make me
If I could write until I lose my mind
So far gone that I can’t be fine
Would that make you smile
Or are you not yet that twisted
If I could write about your eyes
If I write about how empty they are now
To show you how much you’ve changed
Would you let your curse break…
If I Could Write...
by Bryson Flegg
If I could write to make you stay
I'd be done today
If I could write so you don't leave
I'd write it on my sleeve
If I could write so you don't go
I'd already know
If I could write to keep you here
I'd write something else, because it shouldn't be up to me
