    When letters grew roots
    with buds like trees.
    When the sound of my heart
    boomed like thunder
    When my hands didn't write they bled
    That's when I knew I was a writer
    Not want to be
    But destined to be.

    You said you just knew
    I wasn't the one

    And my heart became a bomb.
    You said I'm hard to love.

    Tick

    You fell out of love months ago.

    Tick

    You found someone else.

    Boom.

    My credibility should never
    depend on someone else's
    opinion of me.

    Listening to loose words
    from foul mouths
    Only lessons your credibility.

    I've had a lot of people
    say they love me
    then disregard my entire existence.

    I wish I didn’t live
    in constant fear
    of being edited out

    - of my own life.

    One day
    Your name will be
    something that is said.

    Not something that hurts.

    There is something so pitiful
    about a broken heart

    Like a million tiny tragedies
    at once

    All demanding to be felt

    The heart's not built for that

    but Poetry is

    Not every conversation
    consists of words.

    I see you & you see me.

    Sometime just being present
    makes all the difference.

    Some days Poetry
    blooms beautifully on my tongue

    Some days Poetry
    crumbles like gravel in my teeth.

    My body is still resentful
    for all the times I let her down.

    Forgiveness is something
    I've granted
    and begged for
    I'm not an expert on much

    But I am pretty fluent in compassion.
