the digital home of Lauren Tyree


the ego is fear

and control wrapped in lust

for power and approval

he grabs ahold of the heart

and cites its deep trust

as grounds for removal

atop his new throne

the ego will groan

grasping for affection

if only he’d known

not to bury his own

after forced dissection

Safe House

The secret to eternal youth

is a life of constant fear,

that snug shelter

in the storm

of uncertainty and change.

Warm, familiar

paralyzing and seductive,

it would like to keep you quiet,


and dumb.
