You will find out that I am not a strong person. Dragons do not make a home beneath my skin to hoard their treasured princesses.  I am not that lucky. For I have misplaced collarbones just as quickly as I’ve misplaced hearts, a pulse still rhythmic against my fingertips. I am a monster of words, devouring Cummings and Plath with no ounce of self control left in my body.  I promised myself this weight would not fall for the sharp edges of stars ground into your knuckles.  But, write air into my lungs, poetry.  Give this wild thing a reason to learn the definition of tamed.

Write me a poem, and I will promise to fall in love with you, slowly and then…all at once.
...More letters to poetry. Forgive me, I'm feeling down this evening.

Seems that you are reviewed in many a club? Would you stand this verse to, another rehearse before one more?


Do you have another work that you would better call your best?

Um, I might be completely out of it this evening, but I have no idea what you just said!
Forgive me. :(

 I will speak plain!

I am a contributor for :iconpoetrynprosewatchers: Would you allow me to present this to the group?

 Or do you feel that you have a better work?

Or do you feel you have enough clubs and friends and wish to decline?

No worries, and besides, so am I.  I've decided earlier today that I'm going to start putting poetry on my account... I've just been so depressed lately... but I wrote a poem, and I felt better...

YOUR POETRY IS WONDERFUL.
Also.... Is that last bit a reference to The Fault in Our Stars?
