parents divorce before you can talk.
write about it
like you don't care. 
try to mean it.

go through months
of shitty pity-leaking almost-poems
before you get one
that actually makes someone feel
and then
say that it was all a mistake. 
mean it.
only feel like a writer
when you're insecure. 

fall in love
with someone. anyone. 
tell yourself 
that's it's just for fun. just for being 
young.
actually love the hell out of them.
mess it up.
write about it. 

smoke 2-5 cigarettes every day,
something destructive
but with the hopes
of saving your lungs for running
(a metaphor? another rule: never tell)
and drink and drink and drink
until you have the courage 
to call up ex boyfriends
or lovers or dead friends
to say that you miss them.
write about that-
act 
like you don't care.
actually care.

everyone knows that you care.
write about that. 
saw a few people writing these-- wanted to give it a shot.

This is brutally honest. And that last stanza is just...the perfect ending.
