i've been doing a lot of poems recently idk why. feedback always appreciated <3

prayer of a lost man

December 4, 2018


please push them away
for they terrify
and please take me away
for i am still

lord, let them label me
as a box rather than a soul
and let strangers pass
and see nothing but stiff and boards
an empty shell

and let my sticker read
"please, DO NOT OPEN me up"
for inside
i am a dead man

    this gave me the literal chills. i loved how you managed to convey the desperate, pleading tone through the poetic voice. amazing!
