No One Lives Here

no one lives here

written by: Kay Gardner



no one lives here
inside my head
the girl who was near
is dead

she never said
but i could see
the way her heart bled
for free

pain like a tree
roots itself wide
imprisoning me

i could have lied
hiding my fear
but that girl who died
is here

Kay Gardner is a poet first, but she is trying her hand at a novella. She has an ongoing poetry series entitled "windows," and is working on an illustrated poetry collection and a fictionalized memoir. She's in love with words, her cats, and adores a really good cup of coffee. She's also a bit of a grammar nazi, which serves her well in proofreading others' works.
