My Poetry


I've been writing a lot of poetry lately, so I wanted to share it, but didn't really know a good place to do so, then I thought of you guys! So here it is, I'll continue to add more as I write them :)



“You deserve better”

Yes, thanks, I know.

I know you’re right,

I know you mean well, 

I know they mistreated me,

I know I gave more than I ever received.

But I also know i’m not perfect,

I know we all make mistakes,

I know I messed things up.

I know I miss them every day,

I know our inside jokes hurt my heart now,

I know that if they told me they loved me, 

I’d let them walk all over me again.



We never said I love you,

I never got to call you mine,

The jokes the plans the dreams

Hang suspended between us,

Waiting to be picked up again 

Or to fall to dust and decay as years pass.

I don’t know what to call this,

I just know it hurts the most,

That I never even said 

I liked you



From dust to dust,

The birth and death of stars.

A celestial body,

Particles twisting brightly

In the empty depths of space,

Timeless, yet still measured by human mortality.

Let me know if you like them and would like to read more!

All three are so pretty despite being on the sadder side! I love them, you're pretty good at this!

I especially fancy this part from the second one: "The jokes the plans the dreams / Hang suspended between us, / Waiting to be picked up again / Or to fall to dust and decay as years pass." I find the idea of being stuck in a metaphorical limbo as well as the imagery of frozen time to be such beautifully haunting thoughts, and you got that down really well.
