Poem: I now Pronounce you, Husband and Wife

Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me

I don’t deserve your heart so please stop giving it to me Wrapped up so neat with a stunning red bow on top I’m an addict a thief I’m a murderer who watches the world bleed without a wonder I’m a black sheep In a portrait-perfect family I’m the air over a funeral I’m the… Continue reading Poem: Please, Stop Loving Me
