Maya Hanson (mye3 poet)


Bury Me


A glance
a deadly sword
made to slip
through your eyes

An overwhelming urge to
Bury me
Beneath the storming skies

It's me
it's you
I'd give anything to
see it through

It's you
it's me
The deadly sword twists in my
soul
set me free

I'm not the only one dying
I see it in your eyes
Years of the impossible
I materialize in your mind

But I'm not the only one alive
Your eyes burn with love's strong heat
My eyes sting with a lost life
When you bury me beneath

Dying words
Spoken alive
I think you're beautiful
Why didn't I ever catch your eye

So many hours
watching you from behind
So many days
admiring your waves
from the shore

At last I'm noticed
Beneath a cascade of earth
At last the ray of
peace
collides with
me

I'm not the only one dying
I see it in your eyes
Years of the impossible
I materialize in your mind

But I'm not the only one alive
Your eyes burn with love's strong heat
My eyes sting with a lost life
When you bury me beneath

My heart lifts
Finally freed from my chains, eternal
Bliss

Bury me alive,
at least it's not you who dies
If I could decide
I swear you'll never die

But you're a tortured soul
you can't control
the fire that finds you here

A glance
a deadly sword
made to slip
through your eyes

Hope it doesn't
slice through my
fingers on the way

I'm not the only one dying
I see it in your eyes
Years of the impossible
I materialize in your mind

But I'm not the only one alive
Your eyes burn with love's strong heat
My eyes sting with a lost life
When you bury me

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
