Let me live, love, and say it well in good sentences - Sylvia Plath


he says it’s strange -
strange, the way i remember
people’s words more
than i remember
their faces

the way i memorize
fragmented
thoughts quicker
than others can
process them

but the thing is:
i have always found
something so beautiful
in the poetry that goes
unwritten

- all the poems that travel
through synaptic gap
glaciers and streams of
[un]consciousness,
whispered in the
unlikeliest
of moments
to people who
can neither
help nor hurt

this is so beautiful. I loved how you grouped the stanzas. It showed different mini ideas threaded together in the whole poem.

“She seems so cool, so focused, so quiet, yet her eyes remain fixed upon the horizon. You think you know all there is to know about her immediately upon meeting her, but everything you think you know is wrong. Passion flows through her like a river."

Oh my god, this is amazing! I can totally relate.

This is a really cool poem! It's thought provoking and it     shows the mystery and beauty you find in these unwritten poems. I sometimes struggle to express particular feelings in poetry so I admire the clarity in yours!
