Random Poem:

little kayla

poets can never have
the last word, it's a ridiculous
thought to even wiggle about
let it blow in its awkward direction
it has its own soul
it owns its peace like a child with no
and when the tables have turned
and it leaves you like a renegade lover,
don't curse it
embrace its fallen treasure and thank
the possibility of giving you depth
now what was mine is yours,
give it your name and when the bitter
goodbyes have closed the last door,
you can only return to your
winter night chores
