i decided to do a short 5 part poetry collection. just to be *interesting*
they’ll all start with “kissing the fragments of/“ and then the other part is the title of the singular poem

kissing the fragments / of silence

foggy tension overlaps our senses;
the hush of the crowd near unbearable
pressing down like we’re atlantis;
forgotten beneath incomparable seas

keep your lips pursed;
or they’ll come and tie them together
and before they go;
they’ll leave your silence with a kiss
darling don’t make a peep

    Your poetry work is something I aspire to write like. Honestly, you should be so immensely proud of your work - i'm at a loss of words as to how to describe it (i'm not even sure if that sentence made sense, that's how much you've blown me away). re: thank you so much for your comments! they've genuinely helped me so much :D
