FREE WRITING

and i'm sorry, i know i should be using more punctuation
because 
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
and 
i know this doesn't seem real and yes, i know
 
i feel it too
but 
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
and 
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!
