i've written so many poems
about love and luck and the
unbearable sadness that surfaces
whenever i think about you.


but you isn't a person,
you is a metaphor for the
birds suffocating in the clouds and the
leaves fighting off the wind.


and when i see flowers
all i can think of is death;
because i am a poet,
and my kind of poetry is the
kind that keeps me up all night,
as i memorize the ceiling
and count every minute
until the sun rises.
it’s the kind that makes me
wish for a bridge because then
maybe i could finally be free.

my kind of poetry,
it’s the kind that kills me.
i can't think of a title.

You know I'm usually not particularly fond of love poems so I almost stopped reading after the first verse. I am so glad I didn't - this is wonderful!

Sometimes when I find a poem so beautiful and amazing I just don't know what to do I just keep reading it over and over and I can't exit the page for a while because I'm so happy I read something like this haha this is one of those poems, in a major way
