maya alexandria

(11.26.85)

alive


i slit my wrists and try to die
blood seeps out and trickles down
kind of thing to make a grown man cry
another death in this small town
i feel the pain of every lie
i hold my breathe
my mouth gets dry
i start to cry
i'm still alive
let it go
let me die
let me show
the pain inside
my heart has broken
my eyes have cried
from the words being spoken
from all your lies
wrist are split

but i'm still alive

Poem of the Day

poet Sir John Suckling

Dost see how unregarded now
That piece of beauty passes?
There was a time when I did vow
To that alone;
But mark the fate of faces;
