my least favorite life

"this is my least favorite life
the one where you fly and i don't
a kiss holds a million deceits
and a lifetime goes up in smoke
this is my least favorite you
who floats far above earth and stone…

the whisper of two broken wings
may be they're yours, maybe they're mine
this is my least favorite life
the one where i'm out of my mind
the one where you are just out of reach
the one where i stay and you fly…"

- from "my least favorite life" by lera lynn


  1. Just heard this for the first time last night ans thought , how unutterably sad...

    perfectly illustrated.

  2. Hold your selflessness in one hand and your sorrows in another. Tomorrow gives us strength as yesterday holds us back.
