no.
i do not want your
love letters
about my freckles,
or my smile,
or my collarbones.
i do not want them.
not at all.

i want the saddest
parts of your mind.
your deepest thoughts,
the ones that left you
shaking in the cold darkness.

i want the thoughts
that almost killed you.
the ones that woke you during
your deepest sleep.
i want the thoughts that
come from within you.

look, darling,
i've written these words,
on this white blank page.
i've written these words.
just for you.
they are so broken,
so terrible,
but I am still so
proud.
