nothing is wrong,
it's just a bit snapped now, a bit
unhurried, but in the way they tell you that
standardized testing is unhurried, the
way the weekend seems like a
long time until monday comes fogging
the glass with a runny nose. how do you have a
tearful hallmark-movie reunion with someone that
didn't notice you were gone? how do you blur
something into clarity, curve a line so
much it becomes straight again?

autumn smells like minty toothpaste and 
far-off forest fires, smoked sunrises and 
popcorn between your teeth; autumn tastes
like lopsided friendships, rotting streets upside
down and one way only, pumpkin guts and sore
throats, a confusedly tangled un-happy, how
do you say goodbye to
someone that didn't notice you 
showed up at all?   
title from "transatlanticism" by death cab for cutie. not totally sure that this makes sense to anyone but me but i felt like writing and putting something out there, so? please comment, it's the best way besides reviews to show an author that you care about their work!

    I'd quote my favourite lines here, but then that'd be almost the whole piece lmao.

    This is so bloody gorgeous. Like Dmoral13 said below, the way you break up your lines really adds to it, and you encapsulate a feeling we all have, but can’t explain. Well done!

    I really love how you structure your pieces. It's like you break lines the way you want (regardless of any 'rules' or things) and I love that. Cause the way you break them works beautifully, is unique, and just adds so much more to the piece.
    Also, I loved how you used the word 'unhurried'! When I mumble this piece under my breath I love how it sounds
