Before I met you, I was a star
Pretty far away, but up close just gas

Shining by external validation and without that a black hole
Wanting to be filled with
... anything

I didnt know I could be worthy for just existing
For just taking up space, I matter

And I havent always loved myself
And I'm not sure why you do

But knowing you has been liberating
And loving you has freed me

Am I  a poet
if the only time that I can write
is when my life is falling apart
  May 2017 Akira
i wrote a lot of great poetry when i was in love
i wrote even better poetry when i was in pain
i wrote the best poetry when i realized that the two emotions were actually the same.

The idea of you and I together is so strange.
the idea of snow and spring,
but even so
Nature can not be helped
Trying to find my way back to poetry, I miss it so much

There is no room for you in my bed
My monsters have already gotten in with me
