   Have you ever been so cold, Sweetheart,
   your knees q u a k e d like that Jenga piece
   that buckled just before your whole foundation


                              I have.

  & no matter
  how many times
  I've restarted your heart,

  one would think
            I'd grow tired,

  I'm still writing you in poetry

     (in the most inappropriate of places.)
  You forced yourself beneath my blades
                                & my fingertips,
  Licking unstable knees,
                         you were death on my tongue:

  angry apricot eyes, unforgivable sin
    scaring my limbs &
  haunting my dreams.

Cardiac arrest
                 & I'd still try to save your fucking life.

Simply: you are an amazing poet. How easily you seem to paint with such beautiful diction never ceases to amaze me as a reader. Your Day 10 NaPo is a bit resonating of ee cummings avant-garde styling (your peculiar take on the word "quaked"; "toppled") making this a pleasurable, rather refreshing read. The subscription gives it a subtle, almost whispered effect. The ampersands gives it a rather broken up feel. In some aspects, it can be good and bad for a lovely piece as I feel while it can disrupt the flow ever so slightly--- it's distinctive (being particularly fond of ampersands myself.)

May I wish you the best of luck this poetry writing month. :heart:

I can relate to how I understood this poem... No matter how many times you try, or how long, or how much anger you have towards someone... If you've ever loved them, you'll do anything.

Yes, I agree.

Both a strength and weakness in some cases.
