lindsey, you tore my heart apart.

it started when he asked me if i believed in forever
& i said not with him; lindesy, he shouldn't blame me,
should he? i can hardly see two steps ahead of me
how can i know if loving him for eternity is everything
i'm going to want it to be? & i know i should've been
kinder and nice to him, he was the first boy to ever
claim to love me; but lindsey, he broke me by asking
me such an uncertain possibility that hurting him was
my only fair capability. 

lindsey, i could hear the promise shattering long before
my family told the news to me; it hung in the air when
my father was the first when it came to leaving. they
never should've lied to me, right lindsey? if my brother
was dying why couldn't somebody tell me before everyone
else started reacting? he's my brother, my one and only 
and there's no bond quite like siblings and he's my special
kind of everything. & i know lindsey, you don't have anybody
and we're more than a sister-sister kind of thing, but it's a
magic you'll never quite understand; and for that, i'm sorry.

i hear words a second late and it's unknown how long it takes
to process them, so when inevitability tattooed her secret
across me, i learned that reader was faster than listening
to the screeching, the world was creating. tell me lindsey,
did you know how pretty words on your body can be when
they're given a reason to be? perhaps if it wasn't for you i 
would've never known the beauty of a doomed romancing
and my talent of accepting. lindsey, you made a career out
of picking up the people with rough edges; i know because
you found me and i fell in love with you lindsey.

lindsey, i fell in love with you and i don't know what to do.

i blamed you for tearing my heart apart just so you would stay.

lindsey, please tell me a truth & then i'll leave you to find somebody
new; cause being greedy is the last thing you'd want me to do.

lindsey, do you love me too?
name poetry.

my new obsession over songs titled with names left me urging to start name poetry & know here i am, not doing homework listening to the same playlist on repeat & finding myself typing poetry under a single pretentious word we've declared someone's name.

and if you're name is actually Lindsey, well, I think it's super pretty ♡

    THIS IS ABSOLUTELY STUNNING. i need a second to collect my thoughts. okay.
    the repetition of Lindsey is beautiful--i love the name. I know a lindsey who i don't really like, so i couldn't help but think of her, but by the end this character was a whole new person. "i know lindsey, you don't have anybody / and we're more than a sister-sister kind of thing, but it's a / magic you'll never quite understand; and for that, i'm sorry" ooh i love this. the mc is vivid and dynamic and i love it.
    "did you know how pretty words on your body can be when / they're given a reason to be?" again, just beautiful. made me want to draw all over my skin :)
    and gosh that ending... wow!! Really amazing.
    like the other comments said, i'm so glad you're (somewhat) back. I missed you!! Hope you're having a wonderful day <3

    Oh my, " he asked me if i believed in forever
    & i said not with him", that's the stuff I look for. "i hear words a second late and it's unknown how long it takes
    to process them, so when inevitability tattooed her secret
    across me, i learned that reader was faster than listening
    to the screeching," I love these lines, the piece seems so complete with them, they're irreplaceable, as all of your poems are. :)
