Lars Governo

A kid from somewhere


Take away all my pain with another smile.
Burn it,
Keep the fires steaming.
Because I see your face every Blue Moon,
And feel the butterflies dance with the demons.
My heart fights a war that’s meant to be lost,
While my head blooms with forget-me-not’s,
Tug-of-war and arm wrestles until I can’t feel the push and pull.
Dress my body with sea shells and mountain rocks.
Watch them crack and spark as my eulogy lulls.
I hear heavens bells ringing,
While I stand at the devil’s door and knock.
