My name is Isla and I always try to do the write thing.

in blue ink in the back of a textbook/i hope you never find this because if you did i could never look at you again

and i'm sorry, i know i should be using more punctuation
i know that's what you're used to from me
but can 
i help it if you've got my brain so scrambled
that commas and semicolons are just marks on paper.

i know that's not something i'd say
i know this doesn't seem real and yes, i know
i feel it too
i'll affirm and repeat until my chest is hollow and my voice is hoarse
pull down and release until my thumb aches and my face contorts

sometimes i can't sleep
because the tectonic plates in my heart are shifting so drastically 
as the chasm you've dug yourself grows exponentially
i know you've seen me trip before.
it's another cliche, i know. another one to cross off from the bucket list;
it's cheap and it's boring and it makes me feel as awkward as you but
falling for you is the greatest journey

    I love your extraordinarily long titles, they tell a story on their own while intriguing the reader. This was a beautiful piece. I especially loved the tectonic plates in my heart part. Keep writing!
