kiss all the people
you know you shouldn't,
solely for the reason
that they look good
in stanzas. 

look at your scars
like mothers peer into 
cradles. then make
more; make yourself into
a symbol for infinity,
or at least try,
because it never works. 

patch yourself up. 
say, "darling, you're okay," 
while staring at yourself in the 
mirror with your hair
damp and your lips
chapped (refer to stanza 
one). change. grow. 
it's what we like to read, 
isn't it?

miss the people in your life
until they leave,
and then miss yourself
as well. screw everything up,
and then write about it
like it had to happen.
try to believe it, ignore
the voice in your head that hisses
and groans in your sleep,
behind your eyelids.
"baby, you're a fuck up,
you know it know it know it".

try to carve the humming
out of your body
by exit way of your veins. 
be hospitalized. give in, give up,
play along, stop writing. 
get better. 

but then you start writing again,
and you learn to love
that doubt that plays in your eyes
like the God you never believed in,
and you pour your soul back on paper
better than before;
we all want to read about how bad
you hurt, so, baby,
you'd better get bleeding.
because i can't fucking do anything

Great composition. Very emotional.

I can see that this is what drives your poet's muse. Every one has their own way. For me, I tend to draw poetry from the best things in life, but the 'once pained, now strong' type theme you have going on here is really very good.

Keep up the good work!

You can't do anything? Hardly. You're living, learning, stretching, growing, bleeding, healing. And documenting it all for everyone to see. It's brave.

loved that middle stanza, messing things up, believing it was meant to be, because after all:
"baby, you're a fuck up,
you know it know it know it".

resonant writing for me

you hurt, so, baby,
you'd better get bleeding.

it's flawless, holy shit. i don't know how to explain myself- it's how a lot of people function, as if damaging themselves is the foundation for a bright future. i just like how it tastes on paper.
