Please Don’t

Please don’t die on my birthday
on our anniversary
on Christmas Day
on any major holiday

please don’t become a headline
a ratings boost
a crimson click
a clock’s shed tick

yes you are a perfect rose
but please don’t wilt
dry up
& lose all color

please don’t be
swallowed in a sea of shells
sinking sand
& engraved names

please be distinct
a levitating lotus
a taken breath
a floating grain of sand

please just move mole hills
erect symbols
raise your fucking voice
when wrong creeps in

please piss on the face
of first impressions
smash mirrors’ pretensions
bend perception

please don’t go
fade away
leave me here alone
please just don’t
