All Along This Is Where I Belong - Poem by Seairra Kyger

Flittering eyes
Lay shut
For silence
While necks
Keep choking
To see
And lips
Refuse to hear
My endless talks
Of reasoning

Your eyes
Lie to me
I can’t make
My eyes say
Tell you
To go away
But I won’t
Make you stay
If I honestly
Follow my heart

You crushed me
My gentle wings
Losing sleep
In a blanket
Of lost memories
I’m going blind
Form lumps
In my throat
And mute
From tears
In my eyes

Let me go
Lay me down
Down in earth
But remember me
Cause I’m dying
I swear
But please
No crying
For me

I’m tired
Of the lies
So here now
I say my goodbyes
I won’t be here
Much longer
So let me go
So lay me down
In earth tonight
