I don't know what this poem is, but I wrote it about growing up and cutting the cord from past selves. Thank you for reading! <3

growing pains

knowing that this is my first pain

knowing that this is my first pain makes the job even harder.

i tell the doctor to rinse out the poison in its steps

i tell the doctor to rinse out the poison in its steps and that even after the sun hangs from the ceiling,

there'll be no one left to let it out of its misery.

there is heartache, here, and i gesture roughly

there is heartache, here, and i gesture roughly around the middle, because it loves to duck and hide,

play the blame game and walk out of the fire

play the blame game and walk out of the fire unscathed.

unscathed.

there were others that knew it first.

i spent years trying to fill in empty spaces

i spent years trying to fill in empty spaces with strawberry lipstick,

i spent years trying to fill in empty spaces with strawberry lipstick, raspberry cavities,

i spent years trying to fill in empty spaces with strawberry lipstick, raspberry cavities, plum whispers.

but the family photographs still remain empty

but the family photographs still remain empty in the space where my shadow breathes.

but the family photographs still remain empty in the space where my shadow breathes. (the same old god will smile and wave.)

(the same old god will smile and wave.)
