Writing A Poem About Unrequited Love is Like – List Poem

Writing a poem about unrequited love is like

dislodging all the bones in your body to make a place for longing to grow / stretching all your muscles until they snap and bleed imaginary scenarios / dipping your heart in hot tar knowing that it would burn and disintegrate / peeling all the layers of your mind to find that one memory where the one you love loved you back for a minute / going through a montage of all your accumulated heartbreaks / tasting the ugliness of your ache and choking on it with every verse / beseeching all the celestial beings to ease your pain while you pen / breaking, breaking, breaking until all your pieces are flung to faraway lands.
