Day 216 – Sincerely

A woman who’s not ready to die

I sign it this way so you’ll know I mean it

A woman who wants to live

They tell me you’re coming to get me soon
But I hope that you’ll never find me
Because I know what you’ll do to me

Please don’t look for me

A woman who wants to stay lost

I’ve spent a lifetime building my world
And I don’t want to leave it yet-
There are still so many things left
For me to do

And you’d take it all away, I know,
The absolute ruin of my everything,
Thief of freedom, canceler of chances
Soft-spoken bearer of murderous news

Dear future husband,
Don’t look for me

Your future dead wife

  2. I really like a lot of your work!

    I’m Tyler, one of the editors for Bard Publishing, and we’re looking for contributors from outside our immediate area (currently, the Monterey Bay, California area) to publish on our blog and eventually in print editions of our zine “Indecent”. Our goal is to build a community of writers, artists and like minds in order to take over the world, or something. At the very least, we just want to hear and be heard, and to allow others a space to do the same. To inform the populace that it’s time to step up our game. If you’d like to contribute anything to the community, hop on over to our blog, check out what we’re about, and you’ll find all the info you need to submit work and whatnot.

    Everything is a Construction / Buildings can be Broken,
