bleeding heart

the tulips are dripping with grief / and bloodshed / and oh my bleeding heart / you saw this coming from the very start / didn’t you? / as you are borne / fresh-eyed / into a world made anew / a shining god / with glowing arms / made just for you / but the fields of daises covered / in neon chemicals / and superglue / and the violets / are just starting to split in two / and your favourite dress is pilling / and when the roses scream out for your help / what are you going to do? / your skin cracking / the books piling up around you / and you need to get up / you have a job to do… / the buttons / fall one-by-one off of your favourite shirt / and you’re never going to find a good replacement / are you?

Things have been… well, they’ve been pretty difficult for me of late. I don’t know, sometimes I do this thing where I know there are all these things I need to do, but I don’t want to do them, and then they start to pile up, and then that starts to get so overwhelming that I just sit there, paralyzed as my life falls apart around me, getting increasingly panicked… and it’s a whole problem. I didn’t really know what to write, but I’ve been having a bit of a poetry block of late, so today I made myself sit down, and write a couple poems, and I guess this is what came out.

Lots of love,
