My heart is a country devouring itself by Lara Reis

Poem

My heart is a country devouring itself.
It searches for the homeland to be called by your name
But you have been a long time gone
and it fills the absence with a flag and a border
that is no longer the same. My ink and paper
I use them as my own nation:
stones, debris, and bones
To build my dome with no window or door
where I’m no longer sure
if you ever will be welcome aboard.

Poet Bio

I’ll go on an adventure. Later, after a deep nap and a strong coffee, repeat. I will go on an adventure. Later.

All good stories always have a dragon. And for a childish reason, I like the mechanical beating of every word that goes out of tune in front of the pale screen that hides the present night a little inside my head.

My name is Lara, I was born in 1984 and I am writing about the worlds build up in my head and when I am too lazy to express myself in the wording I use my simple drawing skill.

To each one of you who has read and follow my stories, thank you.
