Rose

 

As the leaves

Bleed out of the tree,

When there is nothing else

To look at anymore.

I’ll be waiting

For something to distract my eyes.

I’ll be waiting still.

A rose.

Just one simple rose,

To replace everything in sight.

But why was I so attached to

This rose?

I got closer with this rose

Each and everyday.

I thought I was in love with her.

I had told her that the next day.

“I could never love you the same.”

Those words, over and over again

Kept replaying in my head.

The next day,

Rose wasn’t there.

She ran away from my feelings.

Only if the tree had that

Choice.

Choices like humans do.

To run away from its leaves,

Like Rose did to me.

But of course, she wasn’t real.

I kept getting attached

To things that never existed.

I do that a lot

And no one is here

To tell me.

I got attached to something

I thought was real.

I end up questioning

My reality.

But I’ll be waiting, still

For something else to

Replace Rose’s and the tree’s place

Something that makes me want to believe in reality.

 


Be Your Own 3am

 

As you wait

for his

3am calls.

Thinking

only of

Him.

Do you think

he is doing the

same?

No.

You are just

a distraction

for his teenage

mind.

He makes you

feel

“Special,”

but couldn’t

anyone do that?

You just

let him get into

your mind

easier than

others.

So is it

worth it,

If you could be your own 3am.

 


The Issue

 

We weren’t supposed

To talk about

The issue,

It was unspoken of

Since you were the issue

You kept hurting people

Who loved you

Why?

 

You kept hurting people

Who loved you

We weren’t supposed

To talk about

The issue

It was unspoken of

Why?

Since you were the issue
