Random Poem:

he loves me, he loves me not

i string daisy chains up on my wall
across the halls
and on every floor
so that whenever i pass i may tear
off the petals and wear
them as a badge of such self proclaimed love
he loves me
i take that half of promises -
and fall
into this bottomless bed
of thoughts
of you. that wrap thorny fingers
around my throat until i choke on the words
he loves me not
