Death Date

October 5, 2011
Where did my past go?
Back when my mom knew less
and my dad wasn’t obsessed
with being depressed
and didn’t spit out and profess
all of these things
I don’t need to know.
I’m trying to grow
but there is no water,
only fire.
Burning all of the memories
that still mean so much to me
blinding- I can’t see
anything that used to be
around me.
Renew my eyes, cut the ties
from the s*** that is holding me down.
Your home may soon be in the ground
and you promised me
that your Lauren I will always be
as long as you’re living,
and now that your body is giving
away, this day may
be one of the last
I’m yours.
