Please Shine Down On Me

Cover Image

The city is frigid, but I want to be outside.


I want to step out into the salt-littered concrete


I'm sure the shards of ice

will crack the skin of my dry heels

but I'd give anything to feel



I can't find the in-between

I feel everything

or nothing at all


...yet I'm only in the cold spring of my life

and it hasn't stopped raining

since I've come to be


I feel wasted, wilted


before I can even even bloom


I should be safe in my cocoon

but it feels like a prison

I can't find the key


All I want is to reach into the sun

but the clouds act like gates

I have no strength to shake

the bars
