i hope you keep writing, your poems are beautiful <3


the edge of the receding glacier

where painfully and with wonder
at having survived even
this far

we are learning to make fire

Annex

 

Anne Frank once said
"You can be lonely
even when you are loved by many people,
since you are still not anybody's
one and only."

I was young in middle school when
I first read that quote and I had no idea what she meant
until I was fifteen.

It was almost as if my life
became someone else's.
I became depressed, my eating habits shifted
and as much as everyone told me they loved me,
I couldn't believe them. 
I was alone.
Isolated.

At sixteen, I tried to fill voids
listening to boys tell me how beautiful they 
thought I was as they held me underneath bed sheets
but I couldn't believe them.

And now with you here, going on about
how you'll never leave, I can already see you
walking out the front 
door.

A one night stand.

A broken heart. 

 

A thousand apologies

fled your lips

as you begged for forgiveness

and slowly we mended out friendship.

 

You asked me why I still care.

I wish I knew why

and it wasn't until I saw you

standing across the room many months later

that I realized

I still love you.
