What do you read when you’re sad?

what do you read when you’re sad

what do you write when your skin doesn’t know how to

hold you to a place where your heart can’t find cover

who anchors you when you need to fly free because

the ground has thorns and rocks and all of it

reminds that belonging bears a price you won’t pay

what do you read when everything hurts

what do you write when the nice words won’t come 

the soft words have sharp edges and your pledges

to stop the tears all come to lies

tell me what you read when you’re sad

    I take to my bed and read science fiction. Something about going to a world outside of this one, prior to sleeping, let’s me wake up with the sadness flung off my shoulders.
