Found Poem: Loving You
Caroline Chapman, Alexa McCarren, and Alyssa Kim

 

Dear Everything,
My heart broke.
Stillness, coolness. Nothingness.
I start to wonder
why us need love.
Why us suffer.
It don't mean nothing
if you don't ast why you here.

Being alive seem like an awful strain.

You had the trees with you.
The whole earth.
The stars.
But, when you left,
happiness desert.

You killing me.

But, I still love you.
Just cause I love you
don't take away none of your rights.
My job just to love you.
My heart must be young and fresh.

So happy, so happy.
Two old fools
left over from love,
keeping each other company
|under the stars.
We talk about you.
How much us love you.

And us so happy.

Amen.
