Words by Lauren Michelle...

Unsolicited movement
Breaking down on the dark
in defiance

Falling through myself
A succinct truth
upon enclosure

You could have walked with me here

Exuding caustic
black pools tremor
with discord

But It's the only place I know.

An enticing displacement
a profound emergence
calling on my name

Blemished authenticity
Condescending to light
Shelter to none

Who would have wanted me here?

A washed-up existence
A ruthless pursuit
Waiting on an accolade

How wise
this version of you

- Lauren Michelle
