Two moody poems in one day? Sheesh. At least this one is at least trying to hold onto the use of some poetic devices.

this bitter yellow
glares at me from the background
of the poor excuse for a poem
locked in my notes app

it mocks the lack of vibrancy
that stares out of my eyes

sunlight is impossible

but i think that is how you see me
golden and perfect
always coming back around

one day you'll catch me
painting over the fade
and i don't think you'll want
any of it
anymore

    I love the theme of yellow here. It's really cool how you bring that out through the poem.
    Re: I know...I'm beginning to think it's just my insecurity too, because he keeps bringing up how we have a lot in common and stuff...I just don't want to get my heart broken.

    This is super cool. It flows really well and I love the transitions between ideas.

    Wow- I love how you started off just talking about your notes app and then go really deep. And I love how you describe it as a "bitter" yellow, it really sets the tone! Also haha- all my poems are moody! I love how you have a personal crest! That's so cool! And also omg wait- that's so cool that you're a twin!
