Louisa Lochrue Poems
Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep
If I could have one prayer answered tonight, let it this be Dear God: Don’t let me lose this moment of clarity In which everything is laid bare – his soul naked and ugly And the lies are transparent: truth is easy to see
Stay away, stay far away, I hate you, don’t call me friend. Don’t look at me, just leave me be, I always knew this was how it’d end. Your stupid smile and practiced gaze, your planned moves disgust me. You think your so great, then go back to your fan club, but don’t you dare try to touch me.
I Want To Be A Runaway
I have a dream, a fantasy, that I keep hidden down deep. I want to run, completely free, till my feet will no longer carry me. Leave my phone, my job, my life. Just up and leave it all behind.
Say whatever you want Or say nothing at all Just be here close to me That's all I need.
Fear of the unknown has numbed me Too paralyzed to speak To reach To span the chasm that divides us
I am a soldier Bleeding red, white and blue I fight alongside the rest The best
The Three Doors
I walked the narrow for a time Then turned aside to walk the wide It led me to an open door Opened by a beautiful whore
Say whatever you want
Or say nothing at all
Just be here close to me
That's all I need.
Lie still, so still
Absorb it all
Let it grow so silent
Till we can hear our hearts beat.
