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:

It feels like a hand reaching up with no hand reaching down and that is sad but that hand reaching up is still there, waiting to pulled up.

the way you've structured this, the flowing of stanzas in the other is so perfectly disjointed and fits the run of thoughts - thoughts that are sad and heartbreaking but also so self-reflective and beautiful wow

stars and sands I love the Dear Amy portion of this, it's so perfectly desperate, reaching out to that person whose face you never see, that you never really know but you tell everything to, and also my body is an empty bookshelf, that's gold right there
