there are so many of you that i would love to sit down with; maybe over a milkshake and a plate of fries; and just talk. i want to ask you about the boy that hurt you, about the anger you feel deep inside over a father who said he’d come back... and then didn’t. i want to run with you through pages of words and say “oh that’s right, what a lovely metaphor.” i want to see all your smiling faces and thank each and every one of you for showing me kindness, for saving my life. i want to collaborate on novels of poetry and laugh with you through the tears of our pasts. so until we sip those milkshakes and eat those fries... thank you, to some of the most beautiful people i have never met.
to all my HePo followers/friends/ fellow poets! you have all given me a beautiful escape from Life <3
