177 (who?)
and i stopped killing spiders
when i realized that we are both just trying
to make our way in the world
and he hasn't got a clue
how he ended up on my bathroom floor

and i can turn out the lights to
stop the moths from killing themselves
but i can't turn off my brain and
stop myself from doing the same

I feel like a coward when I favorite a bunch of one person's work without commenting on anything, like plucking a handful of well-tended flowers from the edge of someone's yard and hoping they don't see me as I scurry on my way. So I'm here to say bless you, your poems are so sincere, they seem to speak directly of the beauty and struggles of humanity...

well i do not mind in the slightest. i think a favourite on a piece of my writing is flattering it far enough! so please don't feel bad at all :hug:
thank you very much for the favourites though! and also for the kind words :heart::thanks:

You are welcome. Your poems are lovely, even then morose ones.
