THIS IS A COLLECTION OF POEMS UNDER A SINGLE TITLE


XVII. Part 1. an ode to the one's who push their sorrow onto others;
       i am not a psychopath.
the stars are only what you make of them
       but when it comes down to it,
they're just balls of gas destined to self-destruct.
       and your falling stars
are the very one's i've sworn not to catch

So, what did you think when you read that. Even if it was the most unintelligible scene that flashed across your mind, I'd like to know.

    Came here trying to find this poem from the facts you posted about the collection. I only joined write the world a few weeks ago and read you collection a few days ago, but this poem sticks with me. "they're just balls of gas destined to self-destruct. and your falling stars are the very one's i've sworn not to catch" hits me in the gut for some reason. It's like someone turning their shoulder and walking away from you. It's beautiful.
