I Lay Alone…

20 Jul

image

I lay alone
Cardboard beneath me
Soggy from rain
Maybe I should leave

I saved my pages
I’ll always have my art
Not taken from me
Even as my world rots

I always have my pen
I’ll steal them if I must
Never get wet
Or alone I will rust

My eyes grow so weary
My hearts given up
Wake from this nightmare
My mind won’t stop
