“…And Tomorrow, There’ll Be Another Murder….”

Powerful words

shelbycourtland

there will be another murder

I am so tired, I almost forget to breathe!
And when it is time to join the dead
will it be because we chose guns
over love instead?

When have you ever picked up a kiss
and killed someone with it?
Did it hurt them when you hugged them?
Or to you, am I just talking shit?

I view them when she’s not around
You won’t believe what all I’ve found

Her fantasies are very great,
And sometimes, inappropriate;

We’re All Serial Killers Now.

In mental health awareness, although we have moved forward, it seems now the term ‘mental illness’ has become synonymous with depression and anxiety alone.
