I don’t want to be here
I see nothing different
From every day, every moment
I don’t want to be here
Nothing you give […]

Taller Than My Tree

May 2, 2016

Something in my shame.
Something in the way
You never said my name.
Do you think I would be
Taller than my tree?
Do you think this is
All there is to me?
I know my shadow.
I am my shadow.
I am a shadow.
I am a tree.
I know what my tag says.
I want to hear […]
