because julius caesar is everything like high school | #everprompts1

March 9, 2021



my \\best friend\\ has called herself //brutus//
     i said
  don't be stupid. you don't even
 write. "it doesn't 
    matter." her hair flies beautifully in the
  wind and i remember how she's always been
   so  much
 prettier than me.

"they wouldn't care 
if i did."

she makes me bite my lips
    in the mall--it's
 so much like red lipstick and yes,
i will take another picture.
       tag me again or
     don't or
   do you hate me or
 love me or
use me or

do you love me, i 
    ask in my perfect
  sugar sweet voice and 
"of course."
      she is cavitous, in herself--
bathed have we in our own toxicity until nothing is left but hate, oh my dear

sometimes it's as if i have begged you to hurt me.

i wonder if the blood
    on my lips
  is of my own robotic habit
  or has //brutus// come to
stab me
        as well...
flowers stemming from her
     beautiful sword.

wow this came out of nowhere. not sure if i really retold the actual julius caesar story it but it's definitely...a thing. 
and as with my previous things, where shall it belong if not the internet?
