Jennifer Weiss Dec 2014
We often say,
" Save me,"
as if it were
possible at all.

like catching
all the world's

like breathing
a fireball

like dogs playing

But those don't work,
and neither does our wish.

like words on the lips of fish

Try as you might
but your attempts will always
be dismissed.

The hope of salvation is
self-love that persists.
love thy self.
know thy self.
save thy self.

— The End —
