Poetry is like a puzzle
To be solved, tiny words
Fitting together
To create whatever you wish
Meeting edges
Some are wrong but I
Can never quite figure out
Until the final picture
Makes itself known
Months pass yet still
I just can’t figure you out
The girl was out of control, sprinting too fast.
She ran herself right down into the ground
And did not stop until she was so far under

The sun was lost to layers of soil and earth, too
Heavy for her exhausted arms to lift. Trapped;
She curled herself up and rested, dormant

A seed. Alone, she waited. Time passed, seasons
Changed as gradually parts of her began to awaken and
unravel. Painful at first, reaching out, pushing up, searching-

When she finally broke the surface she shyly stood
Unsure of herself, slowly shaking off the dirt until
She found the warmth again and bloomed.
Please do not cut yourself open
and lay bare your insides

For how can I honestly carry your
heart and soul upon my shoulders

When I am barely strong enough to
stand upright

Crippled under the weight of myself?
Blood tests
Blood tests
Blood tests

Three doctors
Two specialists

Eight tablets
Morning and night
Every day for
Months on end

Blood tests
Radioactive scans
Blood tests
An acupuncturist
More blood tests

And once those stats are
Finally back to normal
When I am ‘well’

Dosage cut down
Medication for another
Eighteen months

Blood tests
Hopefully dropping
Back to every

Three months
Then six months
And twelve months
For the rest of my life

It has been eleven months
Since I stopped writing
And that is long enough.

You don't need to know much.
Writing. Tea. Rain. Music. Introvert.
That's me in a nutshell.
  • Mood: Isolated
  • Listening to: Snowdrops - The Pineapple Thief
  • Reading: Nothing. Unusual for me.
  • Watching: BBC Sherlock Holmes (Season 3)

So right now I feel like deleting this. I've been considering it for a few weeks, but I don't know. I never put up photography anymore. I don't really feel like writing anymore, and if I do it's pointless putting it up because no one reads it. But then maybe having this account is the only thing that half makes the writing worth the time. Hopefully it's just a stage i'm going through. I can't say I feel interested in anything really. I want to sleep forever.

On another note, I  think i'd like to buy a vintage typewriter.
That might help me.

Just wanted to thank you for the fave!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in supporting me in that endeavor of mine?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
