i.
i wrote this for you.
i wanted you to know
that i am always
(changing)
the same

ii.
i burned my mouth on my coffee
and remembered the scorch of your lips
burning, stinging, lingering.

and i finally lost those ten pounds
that you told me i didn't need to lose
but i felt the need to be underweight

and at night, i curled my little self up in a ball
and thought of every part of me that
you could never love.

i guess a part of me always wanted
to be fragile.

iii.
you will never know how many times i saw you
in the backs of other men,
and i ran to them, calling your name
and they'd turn, confused.
they'd say, "Can I help you, miss?"
and i looked into their unfamiliar eyes
and wished with everything in me
that i could say yes.
"could you promise a certain boy
will see me again? because i seem to have
disappeared."

and I'd walk away disappointed
because that was the day I'd decided I would tell you:
you are the sunlight
streaming through my window in the morning.

iv.
i spend hours collecting
pillows and cushions
clutching covers and blankets
for when i
                fall
                    for
                        you
again

because it's too far to fall
and my bones are far too breakable
this time

iv.
i feel more unlovely than ever
and i don't understand why you
are so unreachable

something in me dared to love you
love you effortlessly, endlessly
immutable and unalterable

i guess a part of me always wanted
to be broken
i just thought maybe you would be there to piece me back together...

"Was it something that I said?
Was it something that I did?
Cuz I gotta know what made me
unbeautiful"


I was listening to "Unbeautiful" by Lesley Roy.

and I give inked-page permission to post my poem.

So much.

This piece is a universal truth.

This is just...gorgeous. Poignant, bitter, and eloquenty expressed.

"you will never know how many times i saw you
in the backs of other men,"


I just love those lines. It's just such an unexpected expression of that feeling of wanting to see someone so badly, missing them, that you think you see them everywhere. I know this feeling.

This is just a lovely piece.

p.s. Thank you for the devWATCH. It was a while ago now, but I have been meaning to check out your gallery for sometime. Really impressed but what I've read so far. I'll be watching you back and reading through your pieces more over the next few weeks. :heart:
