I have been suffocating
on the stars of my past
like horny gentlemen
do with innocent looking
wolfgirls at 3am- their bite
fearless as thieves.

My lilac lungs are breathing in
dust and the tears of Saturn’s
nameless moons,
while the rest of me -
well, shes warm off wine
and poems left

You are no longer caged.

I haven't even taken this poem out of my messages despite the fact that I've read it so many times I have most of it memorized. There's something really unique and relatable about this poem and  I'm sure everyone must be understanding some different concept than me. Sometimes the way people interact reminds me of a competition as to who can destroy the other one first. Who can hold the other prisoner and  inflict the most damage? Being a writer gives you a sense of clarity, an unbiased third person perspective and it often makes you feel like an outsider, like you know some secret everyone else is too ignorant to pick up on. Like you breathe different air and cry different tears. Where others find pleasure in destroying and owning others you find pleasure in the numbness of alcohol aka writing. That's what I got from this poem it's my first critique so I hope it wasn't mind blowingly wrong! I absolutely love this poem :)

Wow, just wow.
I hadn't even thought of it that way.
I'm speechless, and in awe of your interpretation.
I couldn't agree more!
