A Letter To My Former SelfA Letter To My Former Self
I write to thee, my former self,
From days thou hast not seen.
I pray it finds thee safely,
Now heed my mournful plea.
Beware the love that lies in wait
To snatch thee up, bear thee away
It came, so sweet, so beautifully,
It left thee then, in disarray.
It tore thee up inside
When shared the love was not.
Thou gavest thy heart to he who did not want it,
And left a gaping hole.
An open, waiting funeral plot.
A broken corpse laid out to rot.
A dripping wound left from gunshot
That to this day repaired is not.
But oh, those days were born in bliss,
When love had veiled thine eyes.
A dream to follow with a hopeful heart
Not seeing Hope's disguise.
But I digress, please listen well.
Forget him now, turn love away
Lest thee succumb and become me,
With heart so empty ere my dying day.
five hour energyi suppose
last week was only an aftershock
of the earthquake you were before.
this place used to vibrate
with metal strings and melodic,
testimonies to life,
emitting coffee-scented moods
and the burn of it too.
i had memorized the
sounds of silence,
i couldn't help but relish it.
no longer had i known
the sounds of folk
and scent of mocha-
you became nothing more
than an echo of the laughter
i so desperately needed to hear again.
then the echoes got louder,
bouncing ferociously off the walls
to be made manifest
i walked into your room
expecting exactly what i found-
an unmade bed,
and an empty beer
(the one that you insisted you needed
just days ago).
i pressed my nose
into the pillow
for incense and cologne and starbucks
to penetrate my mind
and thinking fervently
i already know
what a clean sheet smells like."
how strong an aftershock can be,
Keep in Touch!
