Poetry from Brianna Dawn.

vicious and gentle

i am in love with a world
that cruelly devours itself
in both dark and light hours
cycle of life, reincarnation,
misleading publications,
collapsing nations,
misdiagnosed,
expensive medication

i am in love with a world
that cruelly silences itself
in both shallow and reaching depths
hesitations, stealing a glance
hiding on sidelines, too shy to dance
too scared to speak,
too tired to sleep

i am in love with a world
that cruelly attempts to keep
itself whole, carrying
her own weight too much
on her shoulders, she has
spun like a spider and continues
to spin around the sun,
cruelly, yet kindly, until
we reach some sort of destination,
a quiet or chaotic end
we can only hope we were
meant for so much more and
not just locked up in some pin
