A Poet Never Sleeps

One day you will be faced with the impossible. When you become afraid, become inspired.

13 January 2015

This is my story now

I’ll call the cops if I see him again

No you won't

I should slash his tires

Egg his car

Freeze over his windows

But you won't

You’re a good girl

Worried about what will happen afterwards

Instead you go to sleep

Cold, shaky, alone

Unable to stand up for yourself

But, but I can’t

I want to but I can’t

And you never will

Five months till you graduate

Move away, lose your chance

Quite, alone, afraid
