Message from Writer

i write (mostly) poems about love and heartbreak, although this is something i've never experienced myself. my only references to the emotion/feelings i put into my poems are books i've read. as such, i'm always open to critique about making my writing more relatable/heartfelt!

please do NOT steal my work! it is not a fun feeling when i have my literature stolen, so please refrain from doing so.

we stand watching the sunset
together, but apart
this isn't close enough
bring me closer
but i can't

the sun falls behind the hill
stars fill the sky
and we stand there
still

i got you
but being to hug you
kiss you 
smell your hoodie,
filled with the scent of lavender soap and sweat
would be a lagniappe
the most beautiful lagniappe

as the deep night arrives 
a quiet sibilance follows it
peaceful, tranquil, 
but not enough
this new world
this calamitous world
is never enough

i stick my hand out,
reaching, hoping, 
but you leave. 

and now
i stand
six feet apart
from an empty space in blank air

and the world feels dark
alone
quiet

heartbreaking.

and yet i remain
six feet apart
this was a super quick poem that i wrote in about five minutes, certainly not my best work :00

i hope you enjoy anyways!!
