Poem By Kitty Marie Lucas

as a child they called me sunshine
there are similarities, i agree
my pull brings damage yet unseen
i crack and burn in my own heat

you believe in my goodness
but i know i destroy
i watch you seem careless
i'm sure i annoy

once the sentinel of things misunderstood
i burned out before i could do any good
moving closer cos i'm lonely
it only creates change
‘til you're no longer orbiting me
i shine bright, concealing pain

they called me sunshine
eternity solely knows my name

and if you don't first
then i'll fade back to whence i came

Bad Cat

gnore that cat
don't feed it
you know you won't keep it


i'm sorry for things i've done
i didn't mean to offend you
i though you'd be more

We Are All Birds

we all started in a nest
next to the ones we first hatched with
we grew from eggs to birds.

Skinny Girl

i am far too heavy
he insists
fat thighs,
fat arms,


how was i to know
i was so fragile,
a frail and small,
little frightened animal?
