don’t wait up

January 28, 2019

are you like me

lying buried

all the earth

heavy upon you

have you fallen

as I have fallen

into a dark dirt

a rich decay

are you dead

as I am dead

here i lie




do you know

are you a seed

as I am a seed

the soil will seep in

and split me apart

do you feel it too

in your breaking heart

this death is real

there is no light

no hope

no joy here

don’t sing a song

of a sweet little seed

she is alone

and dead


all those who would sing

or celebrate or love

will have to wait up there

in the light above

she won’t be up


anytime soon

got some important

dying to do

maybe you have too.
