Let it go

Your mouth is moving

and there are sounds

trying to bubble to the surface

you’re trying to tell me

and my ears are deaf

and my heart is numb

and my eyes are lifeless

I’ve taken off my armor

I’ve built my walls

where you are not

allowed to be

I’m saving me

You were never a knight

you never saved a soul

and when you tried to swim

you sank beneath the weight

of all your lies

I stood above the water

along the shore

and watched as you fell

I could have saved you

just as you could have

saved me

No hands

kicking feet

as I fell

These skies are gray

the air is heavy

my shoes are full of mud

and I’d rather be buried

under a mountain

carry its weight upon my chest

and let you drown

and be eaten by the

monsters inside your soul

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
