god i hate poetry. 
cat's-cradling these words between my shattered fingers  
and ripping open these dainty packages with my teeth 
licking the residue from my open palms 
and swallowing words like i do my pride 

i've served my time
and i suppose i like to think that i have done it well. 
i've played my music through the window 
and traced my feet along the softer grasses 
waiting for the clouds to open up their arms 
and shower me with affectionate rain 

i am a snake in the grass 
and you throttle me like how you clutch the 
open neck of a wine glass; 
i've taken to watching the way you leave your heels exposed, 
as if daring me to bite 

this cloud of instability; 
this collection of matter means so much to me. 
sometimes i forget that all we are is stardust; 
ashes to ashes and dust to dust 

 
battling intrusive thoughts. so here, take some brainrot while i try to regain the motivation to write anything else.

    I'm addicted to this
    it's true, it's raw, it's insane and awesome
    following up on what poetry said: it's the first great thing I've seen in awhile
    hey, take a hiatus if you need it
    we all need breaks
    sending love <3
