73 (who?)
I am
  shaking ligaments,
       tender machinations,
   unrealistic ideologies of an
arbitrary                              cynicist.

     [gaps between
  human sympathy
are toxic; breathing
is a chore. there is
 a careful warmth in the
    combined effort of
      necessity's unwanted
       side effects.]

we are the forgotten.
we are the tangled limbs
and childhood stories for
a more sensitive future; we
are the longing, we are
the limitless.

    we are measured
  in the people we touch;
and I will love you
     in the UV light of
                            hide and seek paranoia.
       I love you in the red shimmer
     of harbored dreams, I love you
in the industrial glow
             of sleeping giants.
                      I love you
                             in the dark
                      when you do not see the
hurt staining my skin, the
             heavy sorrow pooling
                         in my eyes, the shaking
             in my fingers they couldn’t
so i think i stopped writing poems and just started cataloging my life
yip yip yippee

you are a fucking poetic goddess. i hope you look at yourself in the mirror,
i hope you study your hands while you're making tea, i hope you cry so hard you feel it on your tongue,
and i hope you flip through your poetry and feel so, so beautiful. i hope you see.

i need to remind myself because i've been feeling really fucking run of the mill lately and i'm scared to write because i'm worried about what won't come out

"We are measured in the people we touch;" Truer words ne'er spoken. This is lovely. The first part was a little choppy for me, but at the line "We are the forgotten" You pulled me in, and never let go. So wonderfully done. gah. when are you publishing a book of these? I'd like to pre-order a copy. :)

I liked the escalation of the "I love you..." refrains at the end.  The "I love you in the dark..." felt particularly poignant.
