Patience is the softest form of love
A Friend Jan 2022
I did not require fixing
Asking only that you do no damage
Here in the rot and rust
I plant my own gardens
And decorate my own soul
Making it my own
Making it my home
A Friend Nov 2021
You are cigarette butts,
Empty bottles,
And nights spent hunched over the sink.

You are journals bursting at the seams,
Bad poetry,
And long playlists.

You are fingernails bitten down until they bleed,
Smeared eyeliner,
And trauma I never came to understand

You are regrets buried in the closet,
Broken glass,
And I hope you find your peace.
A Friend Nov 2021
A poem of thankfulness
That you are gone
And have stayed gone
A Friend Nov 2021
When you like someone for what they represent perhaps they’re better left as an idea.
A Friend Oct 2021
Some people destroy the things they touch
Just to prove they can break
A Friend Oct 2021
Art is our savior
Revealing which lessons lie
Where pain resides
Turning salt to sugar.
