Bury Me

December 1, 2008
By Angelica Allgood, Lewiston, ID

I ask you to kill
This task set apart
take in hand this drill
Dig it deep into my heart
Let the blood flow
Let the anger take you
Don't let the tears show
Don't let sadness break you
Just find the hammer
Bury me in the wall
For tonight don't stammer
When you hear my soul's call
Stick each piece in
Make sure they're all there
Don't forget the tattered skin
Don't gaze into my empty stare

The author's comments:
After going through a major bump in my life depression started to creep upon me. It darkened my days leaving poetry to be my only friend. I felt that if i were dead things would be better for the people in my life.
