we're like this: humans picking up litter that decorates
the ground just to throw it away, the truck takes it back
to another piece of land just to litter again. and yes, life
discriminates, it's cruel; picking and choosing who gets food,
shoving love down throats just for them to choke it back up,
blessing those with curses we don't dare think of, and breaking
down the people with words coming from other human's mouths.
life loves to remind us how we're all just so utterly, pointless.

then there's death, she's kind; she doesn't dare discriminate against
anyone, regardless of any crime. she knits a blanket over the world,
so to keep our corpse warm; sewing broken hearts together, bits and
bits of color: the color of your lover, the color of your pain, the color
of a hot summer day, the color of your broken winters. 
she takes your
soul kindly when it's time, while whispering, darling, this moments
yours alone, don't worry, you're not as life says you so: pointless.
1/3 of this poetry thing i'm trying to do.

    This is spectacular. Really beautiful. Great use of italics as well. My favourite lines are:
    'Shoving love down throats just for them to choke it back up...'
    and
    ' the color of your lover, the color of your pain, the color
    of a hot summer day, the color of your broken winters.'

    Simply just beautiful. Thanks for sharing your writing with us once again.

    this is excellent uwu the parts in italics killed me upon impact (the colour of your lover, the colour of your pain, the colour of broken winters), also ‘to keep the corpse warm’ was brilliant. i also loved the whole life/death contrast you were pointing towards, just amazing
