GRANDPA’S POEM

Top floor,
All the way down the hall,
The second door on the left.
You laid there
You slowly lost your battle there
You became smaller and smaller
And frailer and frailer
You stayed there
You fought 3 different kinds of cancer there
You faked a smile there
And you knew that you were dying there
You woke up later and later
You slept more and more
And you see,
When I wasn’t there to say goodbye
Or to say I love you one more god damn time
You died there
Top floor,
All the way down the hall,
The second door on the left
It’s empty now
Your laughter isn’t there
Your heartbeat isn’t there
Your hands and calves that were once so strong aren’t there
Your stories aren’t there
You aren’t there
The damn room is empty of you
The only thing left is the memories
All of them
The good, the bad, the ugly
Every single laugh and every single tear from those days
They haunt that fucking room
And Grandpa,
I miss you
More and more every day
Some days more than others
But never less than the day before
I love you grandpa
See you in my dreams

Breathe Deeper

Maybe asking you how I can help while you’re holding a gun to your head wasn’t the best idea.I never thought you’d tell me to pull the trigger.The tears really won’t stop coming this time, and I don’t think it’s just because there’s something in my eye, I’m almost positive it’s because of all this blood.I was only trying to help, please just breathe deeper and lie again.Tell me everything is okay.

I never thought you’d tell me to pull the trigger.

The tears really won’t stop coming this time, and I don’t think it’s just because there’s something in my eye, I’m almost positive it’s because of all this blood.

I was only trying to help, please just breathe deeper and lie again.

Little Wing

When I’m sad, she comes to me, 
With a thousand smiles she gives to me free. 
It’s alright, she says it’s alright, 
Take anything you want from me,
Anything. 

Fly on little wing.
