October Pocket Poems

10/8

Every flicker of the clock lights a match under my aching rib cage

Every unfinished test crawls it’s thorns up my neck

 

My world stings with your stare 3 feet from mine

screaming earthquakes into the silence

You’ve wasted so much time not being good enough

 

10/9

unnamed-3

 

10/12

gravity hugs me close to my bed sheets

as the weight of my unknown future sits smirking on my chest

could make something of myself

but i am thin air

nothing more than an idea

 

and what can you make of that?

 

10/14

I’ve tried to write poems about hurt

In a language I was not fluent

I think it’s time

I listen

 

10/18

Face hidden in my phone as my feet pull me to class

I am texting myself poems.

I wish I could just say these things aloud

and rip headphones from ears like bandaids.

Maybe if I whispered this to a stranger

it’d be the first time they’ve been awake in years.

let’s hide behind masks and paint

and never say what we are afraid of

happy halloween
