Cowardly. - Poem by Lauren Miller

You are the epitome of every disgusting thing that make men cringe
You are a lonesome coward among kings
A fine name, a handsome Armour and nothing more
Can't even find the time to place the words in places where they mean the most
To the people you mean the most to
Those who waste endless days and spaces of rain to see your face
And never have the unfortunate situation in which they do

You hide behind your lovers name, carelessly evacuating all the space in between
Those whose only goal is to see you thrive
Inherently through good spirits they still believe you've got some morality
Even when you prove them wrong, save the rain and the pain for another day
Because all you're chasing is the sun
Instead of following those who chase you

Hide behind your flaw-filled disgrace not matching correctly with your flawless face
Normalcy is your disguise, your ultimate goal
Accept the demons that encase you and unchain them from your wounds
Let them fly free and flee from behind your cowards domain
For tomorrow the sun will rise and you will have indisputable time to finally make all of those apologies
