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...

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.
