GUM
-Hume gum iss baat ka nahi ki hum teri zindagi mein nahi hai

-Hume gum iss baat ka nahi ki hum teri zindagi mein nahi hai
-Hume toh gum iss baat ka hai ki jise tune chuna voh tere kaabil nahi hai

i used your love letter to spit out my gum
MisfitOfSociety Jul 2019
An old horse smiles behind my mouth.
Scars of time hang from its gums.
Physical renditions of the ticking hand,
Going around the sun,
Beating down,
Weighing down.
bite it,

chew it,

it just holds,

around again.

just like,

my broken self respect.
Chew it and dump

i’m a flytrap in Saran Wrap
Definition clingy
shouldn’t be satisfied to be qualified
as the gum that’s stuck to your shoe

This anxiety could be all from nowhere
It might not be real
But honestly and actually
it’s just how i feel

i'm feeling dead
my heart's full of dread
my body aches
my hands shake
my mind's numb
i'll just keep chewing my gum
to stay attached
to this world that's come
and torn me apart
just how i'm feeling i guess.

p.s please critique i'm bad at poetry and i'd love your feedback

You were
the most
colorful

but your
flavour
was short
lived

"unwraps another"
Stepped on, squandered, smashed.
Thrown, trampled, trashed.

Everyone passing you by,
Not wanting to look you in the eye.

They think you're ugly,
Glancing at you smugly.

What they don't know,
Is that you bestow

A beauty they can't even comprehend.
For I think you set a trend.

A trend of great love and beauty,
Who's splattered cement still smells fruity.

They'll never know you like I do,
So let's bid them all Adieu.
