not missing you

I don't know why I texted you

Spontaneously last night. 

Usually I set up some elaborate plan, 

So I can do everything right. 


You're failing school, 

Well guess what?—So am I,

It hasn't even been an hour, 

And I have a poem to write. 


I won't get obsessed again, 

I won't fall in love with you.

I promised myself I never would, 

But I also said we'd never talk again too. 


I found someone who makes me happy, 

So why am I still waiting for your response?

I love her, and you are past, 

And I don't care what you want. 


But I see we're not so different;

You still play guitar. 

We're both in bad places, 

And you're still woven through my scars. 


But the past is past, 

They say forgive, and forget. 

Though I don't really see how that is true, 

Because you're still waiting for me to say, "I miss you."

  • death bed

    You push me out to sea

    With every toll life takes. 

    My wood is deteriorating 

    With thousands of years. 


    I've held village girls

    And I've held mothers. 

  • Standards

    Anxiety is encircling my fingers,

    Every move I feel a twitch. 

    This pain is nothing new

    And now my heart has a stitch. 


    I didn't want to break your heart

  • The Ending

    I finished the story, 

    How can that be true? 

    I don't want it to end, 

    What are their futures? 

    It doesn't feel real, 

    And I can't believe it is over.
