take this mess and call it poetry

i hurt because of you

i want to wrap my words

i want to wrap my words in a silk tied ribbon

i want to wrap my words in a silk tied ribbon,

mail letters full of

mail letters full of conspicuously

mail letters full of conspicuously mysterious

mail letters full of conspicuously mysterious love

leave the red flag down

leave the red flag down just to see

leave the red flag down just to see if you’ll check without a notice

and watch

and watch how they pile up

and watch how they pile up with slanted

and watch how they pile up with slanted sunbeams

and watch how they pile up with slanted sunbeams filtering

and watch how they pile up with slanted sunbeams filtering faulty

and watch how they pile up with slanted sunbeams filtering faulty dust-bunnies

through the crevice

through the crevice in the shaky wood

you could never

you could never build things

you could never build things that don’t mean a thing

you could never build things that don’t mean a thing to you

and so my letters

and so my letters lie

and so my letters lie restlessly

and so my letters lie restlessly in the broken abyss

and so my letters lie restlessly in the broken abyss you’ve left behind

i’ve never spoken something

i’ve never spoken something more true

i’ve never spoken something more true:

that i hurt

that i hurt because of you.

note: i just want to write something beautiful. i want to be a sylvia plath, an emily dickinson, a william shakespeare, i want to write famously and have my lines be spoken for centuries. but i can't seem to think that what i write is ever enough, that it can ever put down my emotions well enough. :[

note: also idk what this is. almost all of this is completely made up and it's like a mess, too many straggling emotions in this one that don't really fit but it is what it is, take this mess and call it poetry. thank you for reading <3
