Don't Ask.A Poem by Kaya
Don’t ask her how she slept,
She drowned in her dreams years ago.
Sleeping in a bed of wishes:
Stories she thought could be real.
Don’t ask her how she felt,
Her last feeling fled when her dream fell apart.
The pain of chasing fantasy
Finally catching up with her real world.
Don’t ask her how she tripped,
She was on the ground before she ever knew.
The cold scratches of pavement,
The first embrace in years.
Don’t ask her how her life is,
She stopped living years ago
Hiding in the wings
She’d thought would help her fly.
Don't ask her anything,
You're the next in a long line
That promised to stay
But found other places to be.
