Weakness

Standard
Weakness

Little moments of stolen joy,

Forgotten lives crawl upon my face

Itching it up and into a smile

White teeth bright to blind anyone looking deeper.

*****

Oh, how weak strong can be,

So tired and weary from holding it all up

Like Atlas, world upon my back

Weeping and sweating with the weight.

*****

How can I be brave?

When I never learned to fly

Only falling for every sly ploy

A piece of sky shattered onto the ground.

*****

Legless traveler, reach on

Out into the world with heartstrings and joy

Finding your innocence with blind hands

Taught not to see your beauty.

*****

Eyes close, slipping tears into my pillow

Smugglers of sadness out into the abyss

Leaving me empty in the daylight

Free to smile again.
