newton’s laws never
applied to you. maybe

tomorrow won’t come, and
we will always be a
few gestures short of
decryption. maybe

you are that glint
on the edge of the
horizon; intoxicated
flirtation of a star, of

a wish whispered
into skin that
cannot listen. I

traced so many apologies into
your spine; Dear Amy, my
body is an empty bookshelf
and I’m sorry I couldn’t
give you a perfect ending.
Dear Amy, you are more than
the hands that hollowed you
and made you quiet. Dear Amy,
stunted emotional development
is a blessing but I’m so scared I’ll
hurt you I’m so scared I care
about you, you’re the first person
who didn’t want me selfishly,
the first person to make
the tremors
stop.

there are so many shades
of blue in your eyes
I can’t capture; so many
poems caught in your
hair. I dreamt about you

every night this week;
I was the monster hiding
under your bed.
you are the note
that rings when the song has stopped, you
are                     the face
that launched a thousand ships, the touch
                                that melted polar
               icecaps. you are so much more
than you could ever know.

I've been needing to cry for a couple days now but I haven't been able to. This is what smashed down the floodgates. I have to thank you for that.
A masterpiece as usual. This poem makes me want to not breathe too loudly. It's intense but so quiet and I love it :heart:
