aka 'please don’t talk to me i don’t think i could handle it' (hypothetically of course)

oblivion

by vivian

whenever i'm with you i'm chained to the ground

anxious unable to breathe tummy somersaults palms sweating shivers down my spine

voice caught in my throat before i can croak out a ‘hi’ yet—

how can you be so carefree

high above the earth soar dip float on the wind loop-de-loops sudden drops

as your voice sings out laughing and shrieking in glee?

do you not notice the effect you have on me

be a puddle of mush melt into the walls hide behind the pillars avoid eye contact at all costs

how can you be so carefree

stand tall bask in the attention seek out conversation hey let’s order out for dinner c’mon bro

—i can barely talk to you when you shine so brightly and i’m blinded by you but—

how can you be so oblivious?

@bernardtwindwil I'm assuming it was the glitch you said you had because everywhere on every post I saw you had commented the same exact thing. Sorry, my bad.

@erofaer I just write what I am thinking. I should have been named Curious. II tend to get into one track of thought. I was just particularly impressed. Most poetry I have read has been drivel but, not on this site. I think that you have gathered a talented group of writers. If I have any criticism, I promise that, in my mind, it will be constructive.

@bernardtwindwil Are you just saying this to everybody? Are you just curious?

@vivian You have written some charming poetry. You were able to transport me to the protagonist of your poetic piece.
