Requests (Rachel Perry - Lafayette, LA)

Why is each step such a laden
sluggish struggle?

Please let the road to destiny be pleasant.

Let vibrant thumps sound from the organ that lies within me.

Let lights within the trees twinkle at nighttime.

Let a moist thick air form film around my skin.

Let despair nor obligation ever hold me.

Let the king's throne crack
in tiny shards and pieces.
Let his crown dislodge and roll in a puddle.

Let the wolf be vegetarian despite his wolfish culture.
Let him partake of carrots with the rabbits.

Let my head never grow too crowded
and let sanity stay within sight.

Let all the highways slowly float away.

For I'm tired of all the motors
metal contraptions
with endless parts
axles
belts
and wires
and wheels
and pullies,
that keep carrying us further apart.

They just carry us further apart.

Let our journies meet once more.
Let me find you at the crossroads,
And there we will embrace as when we parted.

When I have thought about all of the ways to make the hurt stop. When I am tired of putting on my strong face for others to see. When I am tired of the tears welling up, filling already soggy eyes. When I am tired of the tears, tears that roll non-stop over my cheeks. When I don't want to hurt the ones that I love the most. When it seems like those who are supposed to love me don't get who I am. When no one has any idea of the pain my smile hides. When I am worried about being forever labeled by others. When I am the one that everyone counts on for strength. When I never show any weak…
