I've written the sky into storms

January into June

I've written on razor blades 

and get well soon balloons

Words on loose lips in the shape of I 

love you

Words in brave tongues, too.

I've written piece by piece a memoir 

of fractions, things that are half

desolate, then half distraction 

Words on open books that you told

me to read

Words in late night drunken battles

The ones I wanted to need. 

I've written bad jokes that used to

make you laugh.

I've written my last poem to you,

and this is just that. 


The author's comments:

This piece was inspired by a girl who forced me to let her go. It ended up being a good thing, but at the time it hurt a lot.
