Ricotta Nov 2018
You are a goddess
Even if you don't lose those 5 pounds

And while I'm looking at you
Through this mirror
I can firmly say
You're the most beautiful person
I've ever seen
And will ever see

Remember me
I'm back

river
Ricotta Jun 2018
I
feel
peace

the flowing of the river
takes me away
slowly
from you

I
can
breathe

I will never love again
but for now this water is enough
I can let go, but I will never move on. Love you always.

make a wish
Ricotta May 2018
In Italy we say
that when you eat
a new kind of fruit
for the first time in the year
you can make a wish

so I spent two weeks
eating exotic and strange fruits

but you still haven't came back to me

you make me feel whole
reborn
purified
young

I fear the day I'll stop loving you
just thoughts. I love you and I never want to hurt you, and that scares me so much

when I saw you
Ricotta Mar 2018
fishes could swim through my ribs
when I saw you

flowers started growing on the palms of my hands
when I saw you

the stars made their home in my eyes
when I saw you

lover
I will join you by the riverbed
and rest on your collarbones

I've thought about it
by "it' I mean suicide

I've thought about it
because I can't stand the thought of having to see my parents grow old

I know I cannot see them screaming for help,
looking for life
and just finding death

I've thought about doing it, really
and I decided not to

because my pain won't ever be as much as theirs would be
seeing me with a void in my eyes
and nothing in my wrists

I
am
healing
but I don't want you to take off your shoes in my home yet

I
am
healing
but I'm still afraid of your touch

I
am
healing
but while I'm healing, you're burning like a broken electric wire, and while you burn you bloom

so yes, I am healing
slowly
trembling
feeling numb
but healing

— The End —
