Landon Godfrey

If only you’d known you were blessed in this world.

Not everything good was a test in this world.

Movies, dessert, sex — all in the afternoon —

there’s so much joy to be confessed in this world.

You wanted Shahid to pine in tongues for you:

Je te cherche à l’ouest et à l’est in this world.

Washing your feet in half of a broken globe,

he said, There’s no such thing as West in this world.

Locked, unlocked. Fleered, obeyed. Withheld, surrendered.

You often noed before you yessed in this world.

Miss Godfrey, how much of your love did you waste

crying you were the loneliest in this world?
