Shit I Can’t Get – List Poem
how there’s always a place for hope in my heart. strong deja vu. how, for all my shortcomings, I always blame that one moment of not listening to my heart. how I don’t have witty comebacks at the tip of my tongue, but later have imaginary monologues of what I should’ve said. dreams about falling airplanes and tsunamis. how I cannot walk away from things that drain me emotionally. why unrequited love sucks. why the gibbous moon is underrated. how work piles up. how good music comes in search of me. how poems sprout from my collarbone as soon as I see him. how he is a mirage. why I can’t break the mysterious wall around him. why every single thing is about him.
