522 (who?)
i've got love carved into honeysuckle wrists,
a murder of crows in my throat,
& a pack of wolves at my back.

i want to know truths behind these myth eyes, &
the distant galaxies under your fingertips.

but, love me. love me, Love.
show me what's beyond Grimm fairy tales
& scars.

spare me your ribs;

this skyscraper heart
needs a place to go.

And I honestly mean everyone of the 20/20 stars I gave this poem.
the way it's worded is beautiful and amazing, I think you should publish a book of your poems! they're so original yet so beautifully worded it's like taking a walk in your imagination because of the amazing detail and description you use!
You aren't obcessed with comments or faves, you write because you're a writer and I love that, I love the way you write and i hope you never stop!
seriously I could read your poetry for ever and still not have enough, you're exactly the person I want to meet in real life.

Simply amazing. Quite beautiful. This poem has that feeling of a lover that wishes for someone to love him back. You do deserve the 20/20, no doubt of it.
I loved this poem, and I know I will love any other poems you make. Keep it up. Althouhg I don't trust love anymore, perhaps you'll make me try one more time to feel that dangerous but beautiful sensation. People like you are those who are ment to be called "poet(ess)".
I loved it, I loved it, I loved it, I loved it, I loved it!!
Just a tip: to make it look more "decent", you should write the fisrt letter of each verse with initial capital letters.

such a sense of the vast & the personal, something wanting to burst out of its shell...

Oh my goodness this poem reminded me why I miss having internet so much. You can be gone forever but come back and find something amazing like this! Kudos to your talent.
