there is nothing quite like the devastation
of seeing yourself reflected in a window
that looks in on a happiness
that is not your own.
my heart feels like it's choking

god oh god oh god oh god

please send me somebody to love.

it's not even poetry anymore... it's prayers.
i'm desperate

nobody will ever be good enough for you,
will they?

I'll never be,
will I?
just tired of it all

i don't want to be resilient anymore.
Pretending to be strong is a full time job.

if only love weren't so...


maybe then, I could

enjoy it.

your shoes next to mine on the rack,
our toothbrushes in the same cup,
the way I know your coffee order
without even having to ask.

the good things never last.

i'd stopped writing poetry
when i first met you...
i didn't need to anymore.

it's been a year now
and all i need is you.

but it's been so long that i've forgotten how to write.
please just love me
