Chloe May 26
The mad man sat in a tower
Wishing for power
Instead he was chained
And slowly went more and more insane
As he wished for revenge
Chloe May 26
Nothing satisfies
Like tucking shaved legs under
Soft, clean, silky sheets
Shaving my legs is a chore but a satisfying one.

I guess when you kissed me under the moonlight
I thought that we would be alright
My mind began spinning
With so many plans
Of a future full of loving
And holding hands
But instead of taking me away
And showing me love to make me stay
You were just confusing
And threw mixed signals
I know I should forget
But my heart doesn’t want to quit
Chloe May 26
I hear one thing
And then another
My mind can’t be made up
And I’m stuck with an empty cup
I wish to be free
Of the chain’s shackling me
I know what I have to do
But do I really want to
I pace and I pace
It’s like some silly race
And then there’s you
Always confusing, always captivating
The largest enigma I have yet to come across
So between working and wondering
I try to solve the puzzle that is you
And while getting my stuff together
That is all I can do
Chloe May 26
I’m genuinely confused
I don’t know what to do
I’ve got everything to lose
And I can’t forget about you

I’ve had black eyes and bruises
Broken bones and ****** noses
I’ve dealt with pain
I’ve fallen and been sprained
I’ve had needles ***** my skin
And cut my fingers on jagged rims
But none of those compare
To falling into someone’s snare
And hoping you’ll be loved
Only to find
You were wasting your time
Sticks and stones can break my bones, but only words can truly hurt me. This was fun to write. I’m typically a pretty upbeat person so sadder poetry is usually not my chosen topic of writing.

You might be quite bored
But don’t make the same mistake
Do NOT dye your hair
I know everyone’s bored in quarantine but do not dye your hair.
