a collapse with May

in the stars

I neglect my journal.
I neglect my roses.
I do not neglect my softness, but
it becomes a private affair.
this is what falling apart looks like,
I think,
in the subtlest of ways.

May has always met me
in my vulnerability.
this time,
she has not brought me love shaped like the moon
to pull my tides from me.
this time,
she only comes to tell me
that maybe it will not always hurt this way.

I neglect my words.
I neglect my voice.
I do not neglect my softness, but
the souls who swore they loved me for it do.

May apologizes a thousand times over,
and yet,
still leaves me
unwatered.
I suppose I now
have something in common
with the roses.

poetry like this makes me

poetry like this makes me both frustrated and happy.

frustrated because i don't understand poetry well enough to fully appreciate it

happy because not understanding it makes it that much more magical.

good job, keep writing poetry, you're amazing at it!

"I suppose I now

have something in common

with the roses"

THESE ARE TRULY INCREDIBLE.

THESE ARE TRULY INCREDIBLE. I love reading this.

Do you know what Angelica said, when she read what you'd done? She said: "You've married and Icarus. He's flown to close to the sun."
