girls that laugh & dream & love
i've seen you whole, i've seen you broken
ripped right in half down the middle
listen to me, girl
stay strong, and don't be afraid to show the world your edges

bodily autonomy
jackie May 2021
oh, i don't think you know what you're doing
don't look at me like that, don't touch me
i've heard what you say about me
look boy,
you don't stand a chance

all those men on the street corners wish
uh, that ain't happening
to the boys who yell
on my heart,
never will you touch me
on my heart,
my body is not your plaything
you can wish and yell and dream all you want

- but you'll never have me.

pick a card,
any card
oh, dear me
you've picked bad luck,
well, you might get a bad parent and severe depression,
but nothing too harmful
at least your family doesn't have alcoholism run through it
it does?
well uh, at least you ended up with a guarantee
that your parents love you
he doesn't?
oh well, pick another card dear,
maybe this time you'll return victorious.

you allow yourself to want
to want to be whole again
to want to love again
to want to be happy again
you've always wanted
you haven't wanted in awhile
to allow yourself to want hurts
it hurts
but you allow yourself to want
because if it doesn't hurt
then how will you allow the pitcher to fill you up?

don't go, you said
don't go, you said again
i won't, he replied
not now, not then, not ever
it was a lie.

i don't think i'll ever forget you
you'll move on, and i'll be stuck
i'm not bitter,
i just remembered
how much you made me feel

jackie Feb 2021
i hated you and i loved you
you were effortlessly beautiful
you stole my breath away
but you weren't meant for me
jackie Feb 2021
i wish
to be released from the chains of my gender
being feminine is exhausting,
wipe your mouth like this,
sit like this,
wear makeup or no one will love you,
don't play a sport, stay in the kitchen
i wish
that being reprimanded for not sitting carefully enough
or walking up the stairs a bit too loudly
was acceptable

i thought tape was supposed to keep things together
lately, the world has come crashing down over
our heads
why are you so angry?
what have we done wrong?
she said you changed after she died
but this big of a change
doesn't seem like it's as healthy as it seems
does the world come crashing down for you too, 𝘧𝘢𝘵𝘩𝘦𝘳?

i'm constantly
thinking over our conversations
you're bringing me down
you're hurting me without realizing it
it hurts, it really does
so i've decided to cut ties with you
this was never meant to work out
i want to say that i want to stay
but this isn't good
this isn't right

in the long run
jackie Feb 2021
this isn't what i wanted
this is not what i had hoped for
when i said i wanted to be heard
you don't care at all do you?
whenever you say something
i immediately respond to care for you
and when i'm upset, angry, hurt
you don't answer
you don't say anything
what does it take
what does it take
what does it take
why do i hold onto you?
you're only going to hurt me

what a waste of time
waiting for you when you don't come
the world comes crashing down
Feb 2021 · 68
thank you
jackie Feb 2021
Kerosene instead of gasoline
I always knew we were meant to crash and burn
Endings, endings, endings,
No texts, no laughs
Exit, exit, exit,
Nothing feels good about you

it's been a long time since i've heard from you
i suspect it's my fault this time
it's always my fault.

it was at that moment
that i realized
hearing you laugh
was the only thing i truly lived for

my revelation
jackie Aug 2020
my revelation :
i'm sorry for what thing i've done
whatever it was, whenever it was
honestly, i don't even quite know what i did
to make you hate me so much
so what i'm the youngest?
so what that you think i'm acting 'quirky' or 'funny'
i'm not
i never was
the only thing i was ever acting about
was being happy

when hell freezes over
jackie Aug 2020
oh, please
don't try and trick me
this time, you've fallen for my puzzles
rhythms and rhymes
the next time i'll intertwine my fingers with yours
the next time i'll let you lay a hand on me
is when hell freezes over
oh, but wait;
you'll have to wait a while for that.
next time?
don't get so cocky, love.

drunk on the sea

smoking sand
and drinking the view of treacherous waves
nails aflame
interlaced in panic
mixed up love
their future entangled together with a tragedy

in case you haven't noticed
the sadder side of me

his words were intoxicating;
sweet but bitter
his voice was terrifyingly lovely
and he was breathtaking
quite literally did he
take my breath away

maybe if i said that
you were all i had;
nevermind, it was a silly thought.

sent messages,
the subtle hints and nudges but then;
she realizes she's the prey
and they're the predator
wolf in sheep's clothing i guess

dear best friend:
i lost you
but you weren't mine to lose

dear best friend:
do you ever think of
what might've been?

twisting vines
unrequited love but
silvery tears and golden stripes
May 2020 · 33

tears in eyes
laughter behind closed doors
and realizing
you'll never laugh like that with me

every time we say goodnight
we exchange 'i love you's' but
i think we both exchange them
for different reasons

'i'm pretty'
the red words upon
my veined wrist

sometimes i can come on too strong but
i wish you would stop shying away
May 2020 · 33
jackie May 2020
am i supposed to be yours?
oh sorry, darling
i wasn't made to be your toy

one time
the sun exploded
and you couldn't look at me
May 2020 · 33

i was a mere speck of dirt in your
mind while you
were a plague in mine

have you ever been betrayed?
it's a silly feeling
it's one where you can't decide
if you're happy you had so many memories with them
where you're puzzled,
because you don't know
if those memories were even
May 2020 · 48
jackie May 2020
you and i
but this time it's only

jackie Apr 2020
but you're too good for me
and i wonder
why can't i get you out of my head?
Apr 2020 · 34
jackie Apr 2020
mostly, i just wish
that i could be there for you
as much as you were for me
Apr 2020 · 31
jackie Apr 2020
somedays i didn't need you
but you didn't have to cast me aside
Apr 2020 · 35
jackie Apr 2020
i assumed that you meant everything was okay
and looking back
everything was not okay
Apr 2020 · 38
jackie Apr 2020
once upon a time
i wanted you and now i realize
i didn't need you

you said you would stay until infinity but
nothing lasts forever
