Random Poem:

i'd speak to you in italics, just to lean against you
mandolyn

your last hug
 1
had me eating stars,
 2
spelling us backwards
 3
buried in your coat
 4
 
 
tighter
 5
you said
 6
tighter
 7
 
 
we last longer that way
 8
you tugged,
 9
tying my hair in a hunters bend
 10
 
 
i dared myself to love you deeper
 11
scooping you daily
 12
two cups every hour
 13
 
 
pulling us like taffy,
 14
taking my time throwing tic tacs
 15
at that monstrous tide
 16
 
 
paying a pirate
 17
to edit my feelings and heal me
 18
from a boys left hook,
 19
 
 
but all it took
 20
was getting too close
 21
before the cannon cursed the barracks
 22
you believed would
 23
keep us safe
 24
 
 
our love went belly up
 25
barely audible,
 26
but twitching
 27
