you don't realize how badly someone treated you until you have to explain it to someone else
Be gentle with us.
or not
it's your call
but keep in mind that we as poets
we feel too strong
which is not to say that that is wrong
we don't ease into love, we quickly fall
we love like we're dying
we live like we're small
but in our minds.
in our minds we are flying

we feel everything at once
you wouldn't think it by looking
looking at our normal fronts
a disguise, a charade
but prey don't believe a masquerade
a poet can be but anyone
existing silently
a poet can be but everyone
existing violently
we all make up stories
we're all acting to a degree
so things aren't so different
no not so different you and me

we notice the quirks
we notice the nothings
if you meet a poet then you should believe
you should know that we
we love what we see
and appreciate all forms of beauty
for to us imperfect is lovely
perfect doesn't exist
we have those markings on our wrist
of all the awful places we've been to we kissed
we've kissed the devil when we went
to hell and back again

so now that you have been informed
that a poets heart is easily scorned
knowing we feel deeply
knowing we feel more
more than we really should I've warned
we don't just love a person when we fall
we love their whole world
we love it all
and when we're hurt it is hard to trust
and thus
Be gentle with us.
there is a regularity.
you need to know that i'm fine when i'm offline on this page.
i go there to hide or confess my feelings into the depthless ocean of other people's thoughts.
just to know in case you bothered
my lover says:" i love you a lot"
sorry, but i feel myself as an idiot.
just 'cause it's fake
"winter is coming" they said.
"agree" i replied, 'cause i started overthinking about relationships with my friends.
i understood that i have not lots of friends to trust that i used to believe and it's fine. it's better to live when scales are fallen from the eyes.
