I spent last night
Crunching numbers

10
Times you led me on

9
Nights we stayed up talking

8
Weeks since you decided I wasn’t worth it

7
Crushed up poems on the floor of my room

6
Outfits thrown aside to make sure I look my best

5
Days I spent trying to get over you

4
Friends that know what we did

3
3 a.m FaceTime calls

2
Coats of mascara

1
Big regret
what do you mean
when you say
he’s your heart

do you mean you
cannot live without him
or

do you mean you cannot control him
or he hurts you when you run
or if you’re too sweet
he’ll **** you
i poured love down your throat
and i ached every time it dripped down your lips
and by the time you finally swallowed it

i had no more to give
they tell me to pick a poison
and my heart is set on you
she is the heaven
you would go to hell for
if feeling could write,

if emotions could paint,

we'd all be drowning

in acrylic and ink
not that you'd
ever read this but
I hope you do


xoxo
-sunshine
hell is a place where
you constantly love those that
do not love you back.
