29 (who?)

Your love smells like snow
in the deep of August, sucking
me like mosquitoes and you.

damn, you always had a talented
tongue, knowing just what to say
to roll me between your teeth and
keep me there; and I was hoping—
no, trusting— I’d not be crushed.

I should have known when
you raised your bones against me,
when you clattered your molars
together but never bothered hiding
the truth below your belt.

And a part of me says  
I was in love with you.

perhaps I'll always be the sheepskin fool.

I'm passing the time before my appointment with the new psychologist with words... because when I die, I don't want the last thing on my mind to be hate and betrayal. This was more of a journal entry... because I quite enjoy trying to make my thoughts poetic the first time. Without revision. So if it sucks, that might be why. It's actually a challenge that is oddly thrilling, though! :giggle:

I'm sorry I haven't replied to everyone yet. I have an inbox full of messages. I'll try to keep replying steadily. Hope everyone is well! :heart:

This is beautiful, you are beautiful. Some people are interludes, moments of interruption in the bigger stories we are written into. It's funny how we get so caught up by passing power that we neglect to notice the strength of the current we are in. There is a force in you of much strength and this is the kind of poem that can demand honesty of a kind soul. Don't linger in your desert places, love is not fickle or cheap. Love demands honesty and that can be scary and depressing and needy and confusing but there will be someone out there who will understand, someone who is more of a shepherd than a wolf.

I'm sorry I'm late in replying. To be honest, I had to leave this comment for a while... it impacted me so much. You don't even know me, yet you tell these things with such certainty and hope... it honestly made me cry. I'm always unsure, then, how to respond to such care and kindness. I apologize that my words will never come close to the emotion I hold within my chest.
You put such thought into this comment that I cannot help but cherish it. Thank you. I shall try to take your advice in the best ways I can, and I shall try and grow with them. I really appreciate your wisdom and your care. It just means so much. More than you know. :tighthug::heart::heart:

You are wonderful. My best wishes are with you!
