drowning happily

FREE WRITING

your warm fingertips melted 
the ice i built around me.

it was nice, the warmth 
finally reaching my skin
Into my heart.

filling me with comfort,
after i’d been so cold
i don't know what it was like
to not be shivering.

it felt great
 to not be so closed off 
to have the water drip off 
in perfect little droplets.
forming a small puddle
at my feet.

that i could look into 
and see my face
reflecting off the...

mind games

my eyes were not 
windows,
for you to find 
the parts of me 
i reserved for you 
to fall in love with.

but instead mirrors,
to admire 
your sick mind.

who have I become?

FREE WRITING

when i looked
in the mirror,
nothing had changed.

but when the words 
began to flow 
out of my mouth,
like unknowns lanes, 
and useless routes,
i saw them in me.

and how i couldn't bare
the thought of ever 
being anything like them.

if only our eyes saw souls,
instead of bodies.
how different our ideas 
of beauty would be.

​woeful love

FREE WRITING

I write my poetry 
in the pages of a notebook.
on my phone, on napkins, 
in spray paint,
on the walls 
where we used to sit.

you wrote yours
on the walls of my heart,
etching each letter 
so painfully beautiful.
so that I’ll never forget.

it's wrong

FREE WRITING

it’s wrong to love her, 
but how can I not?

when she’s all sharp edges

and soft words.
and smoke but no mirrors,
and thin blonde hair,
and eyes that say more than

most people do in a lifetime.

she is soft skin 
and sweet smiles
with a hint of,
I’m going to kiss you,
and I mean that as a threat.

well I'm not scared.

we've changed

FREE WRITING

you were the prettiest 
rose in his garden.

you grew so beautiful.
your leaves, ever more green
than the most colorful tree
in the valley.

your petals, blooming,
bright and soft,
mesmerized those who 
stopped to take a look.

his water turned you 
into the happiest flower,
capturing the minds of many,
envied by all,
for your perfection.

yes, until he drowned you.

consequences

FREE WRITING

if I hadn’t met you,
would I be ok?

probably, yes, I would.
I might still have straight A’s.
I might not be on medicine
that hurts to swallow
or the other one that’s 
painfully bright blue.

if i could go back
and not meet you, 
or them, would i?
i don’t know.
maybe.
