Days Like This

Days like this

When I find myself crying over my soup

Trying not to wake up the cat

Feverishly collating the files in my mind

What can I do

What can I do

What can I do

How else can I give my life

I want to give my life

Don’t take hers/his/their life anymore

I’ll give mine

I’ll show you mine

Look! Look at it!

I’ve seen intestines eviscerated and brain matter dripping

And I still tried

We all still tried

Our hands jumped to it, puppets guided by

Nothing more than hope

And love

And hope

And love

And when we couldn’t

So many times that we couldn’t

Get back that life you took

We still lived in hope

And love

And hope

And love

Please don’t take their lives anymore

If you need proof

Just look at mine
