Poem By Alien Girl

It's only my body
It's not who I am

But if I were to fall
Would you be the one to catch me?
When I'm tired and weak
Would you be able to carry me?
When my worlds gone dark
Could you me help me see the way?

It's only my body
It's not who I am

And when I collapse in your arms
Will you rest me softly in my grave?
When my eyes close only half way
Will your fingers run over them?
When I'm cold like the ground I'm in
Will you warm me with the soil?

It's only my body beneath you
It's not who I am

I cant honestly say that it hasn't crossed my mind
That you may be the one to save me from this
But if I end up underneath you
Know that it is only my body
Rotting under there
It's not who I am

You're ability to convey the sense that who we are transcends all physical aspects is quite brilliant. Lovely piece. Best, Sarah

*rock Bottom*

I will have to hit the bottom
So I can push off and swim to the top
I will have to let myself fall so far
To see where I really stand with you

*natural Causes*

I awoke last night
To the sound of crickets
And birds, which was strange
The kitchen faucet was dripping

*cry Wolf*

I need you to know
That I’m not all talk anymore
I’ve stopped crying wolf
I’m waking out that door

*fortunate One*

They say that I am a fortunate one
The fortunate daughter of a poor mans son
That dwells in the city of angels unseen
Living in luxuries you’d never believe


There are rules
That we need to follow
Left follows right
Day follows night

*you Stood Above His Body*

You stood above his body
And made a promise then
To him
To me
