Let me dream Pretending you still care. Hiding from your words. Hiding from your actions That burn me so. A tear falls Telling the world my story. The last. The last tear The last heartbeat The last breath.
Sleep forever more. Let the darkness engulf me So I may hide from the pain. Please Death; grant me one of your icy kisses. Take me away from the realities of this world, Let me be free of the knife stabbing my fragile heart. Do not show me the truth I cannot take it. The pain will cover me I will breathe...
She does not dance She does not dare Instead she hides Behind her hair. She does not play She does not run Being her Is not much fun. She never smiles She wears a frown She does not hope For prom queen crown. She sits and watches As her life goes by She does not laugh She’s never tried. She does not talk She doesn’t try She just walks past As days go by.
Have you ever heard the whizzing of bombs Dropping to the ground around you? Did you ever worry that it would be the last sound you heard? Or that you would walk home afterward And it would be gone?
The sky above us has never held fear. We have prepared for the horror. We have brought it to others With no retaliation. America has never heard the screams “Mother? Father? NO!!!” Our children did not die, They did not lose their parents and homes To some unseen enemy in a metal bird.
