I'm not used to being loved

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition: 2021

I’m not used to being loved.
I don’t quite know what to do.
I’m not yet used to your touch
But I feel it’s long overdue.

I’m not used to your voice in the morning
Or that you love mine.
I’m not used to feeling this important
But it’ll be second nature in no time.

I have spent hours looking in mirrors, cursing my design
But you showed me that I was carved with you in mind

So i’m warming...

Just Another Boy

FREE WRITING

I always think about the day when you walked me through the park.
The sun had begun to take its leave.
While you began to take my heart.

We stood under a streetlight, and wasted the time away.
I wondered why you stayed with me,
Why you looked at me in that way.

I always regret not telling you how I felt that day.
I wonder what could have happened
If things went the other way.

I always regret not seeing...

i don't know you anymore

FREE WRITING

We haven't seen each other in nearly two years.
Word has it that you've changed a lot.
Strange that we were like a branch and the leaves it wears
But it seems that spring has gone.

You've gone on your way and I'm on mine.
We didn't look back once - apathy, I guess.
Now, I miss you, I can't deny.
But it hurts too much to have regrets.

You helped me to grow the way that I've grown.
There...

Put Myself First

FREE WRITING

My body is tired of this pressure.
It feels as though someone is always expecting something from me.
A shoulder.
Productivity.
Stability.
Most times, I put the expectations first.
Before the messages from my body.

I want a break, it says. Put me first.
Okay, I say, putting it first by meeting expectations.
Put me first, it says, again.
I am, I say. I am putting you first because I am meeting these expectations.
I am being...
