i.- the whorish age.

i was born 
young, but i think
i've somehow always been
seventeen. that's really 
the most impossibly 
lonesome age
to be. 


here you are, 
stuck in the middle of
innocence and
adulthood- god, seventeen
is such a fucking
tease. it's all the 
want, and none
of the get, none 
of the 
have.

ii.- the epitome of in betweens.

maybe it's just
me. after all, i am constantly 
grasping at the
in betweens. i live
on 'maybe's and 'perhaps's, feast on
'could-have-been's. it's
what i breathe. 

the worst one, to 
me, is 11:49 
p.m.; it's almost 
a new day, but it's just
11 minutes away. it's
in between yesterday and
tomorrow. i wonder if
11:49 p.m. is 
lonely. i wonder if
it can feel the buzz of
nothingness, the hum of everything it
is not. 

i wonder if i 
am 11:49 p.m., because i am
drowning in the things
i have yet to
become.

iii.- the typewriter with pins for keys.

there is this
thing inside of me, this
human made 
distillation of pure
galaxies, choking me on
half melted constellations. 

if that thing had
a name, it would be called
writer. 

i am constantly
made up. words on my
tongue, in my 
lungs. i am tangled in them
and but i never tell them not
to form a noose. 

like cinderella, i can't 
stop myself from
pricking my fingers on
wishes.

iii.- to die with flowers in my eyes.

let's get one thing
straight: i don't want to 
die. 

i am seventeen- i am one big
'perhaps', and i 
am not extraordinary. 
i just want to 
be. 

if the light from my eyes
fade tomorrow, i want to drown
in dirt with a sense
that six feet above my dreaming
face, people will remember me 
as being
something remarkable.
i'm writing a book.

good job. randomly came across this, fresh read, reminds me of my poems when I was seventeen, not so long ago. very Sarah Kane-esque as well with the repetition of the time. Hope the book goes well.

Wow, this is incredible! So true and so beautifully written, I can relate even though I'm not quite seventeen, or even very close to it :XD:  Now I really want to go write something..
