I have felt the weight of so many feelings pile up inside me over the years The top layer of myself is composed of a loss for words I fell in love once and back then it was as if the words would never stop flowing out of me Poem after poem pouring out of my soul about a girl who i ended up falling so completely out of love with Ever since then i have looked at my notebooks, stray post it notes once equipped for a passionate flurry of words to be smattered onto and then neatly folded into an origami heart I’ve looked at them and felt only loss Falling out of love overtook me as slowly as falling in Shy moments persistently becoming noticed until i realized that I wasnt who i used to be when this all began And honestly? I dont know who i am anymore I really don’t And perhaps that’s why i havent found the words yet These past few months i have been urging myself to write, write, write, You know you will want to remember what this is like so write But i looked inside myself and all i saw was a confusing blob, a living person with questions for organs and i didn’t know what to do What had become of who i was And so i pushed writing away Words that so easily poured from my fingertips, trapped behind a self made dam I felt silly I feel silly How to i begin to describe that i no longer recognize myself That the image of who i was A scared angry depressed teenager has been smeared at, scratched away with rough greedy hands And i am left looking at an empty husk of an adult A living breathing ‘what could be’ And i am lost And i dont know I must really admit, i know nothing- at all.
i havent written a poem in months. I kept stressing and worrying so i decided to just, let my brain do what it wants. And this is wat it did.
