*trying*

Poem By Alien Girl

I’m trying to cry but the tears don’t come
I hear the gunshot - the race started - but my legs won’t run
I’m trying to lie but can’t find the words
I’m trying to see but my vision is blurred
I’m trying to fly but my wings are torn and bound
I’m trying to breathe but the air can’t be found
I’m trying to die but this body keeps living
I’m trying to love but there’s no one worth giving
I’m trying to sing but I don’t know this song
I’m trying to let you go but your grip is too strong

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

To the sound of crickets
And birds, which was strange
The kitchen faucet was dripping

I’m waking out that door

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

Day follows night

*you Stood Above His Body*

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