Rue Kendra Poems
Always have I walked alone Everyone's farther away Even so, I kept walking. That was my strength.
You live, you hope, you try to fight Your monsters, your demons, your weakness, For freedom. Your bones break, you start to decay,
Silent. Grey and pinkish. I take a deep breath in of half of an unlit cigarette, Placing the blade to me soft tan skin
That hurt. That hurt to. Again, that hurt. Please stop, that hurt.
The war is in my mind. The wounds are on my body. I've always drawn in lines, Cause you can trust those lines
And I wonder again Will I lose you if I speak Your more than a friend But are we strong? Are we weak?
It's passed, gone What once was, its lost You can chase, stab at it- In the end you can beg.
Grey and pinkish.
I take a deep breath in of half of an unlit cigarette,
Placing the blade to me soft tan skin
Then a high.
I stare out of the enclosure of the slide,
Cars passing, dog walkers, children
Unaware that I sit in a childs playground,
