Soon | A Poem

This is about a girl with a damsel-in-distress complex, she seeks a hero so she self destructs just to be saved. She like most of us forget that the only person or thing that can truly save us is in the mirror.

Often, I self destruct
Just to hold your attention
Knowing you’ll save me
Before it’s too late
It’s too soon
To be too late
I don’t mind the wait

I can wait the wait
I can starve with grace
I can run from fate
You can be my hero
I’ll be your mistake
Darling, I self destruct
Hoping you’ll save me
Before it’s too late
Soon it will be too late
Sleeping with a heavy heart
I can’t bear the weight
