Poets Shouldn't Love (#36)

November 15, 2017

Poets shouldn’t love,
but that's the thing with poets,
that's what we do.
we find any reason to cling to a sentence because
we take words and thread them into our skin because
we find a home in their voice when it’s 3a.m. and
we’re on the phone because
“you are beautiful” means more to us in essence
and love is more than just a word, it’s a mix
of emotions and feelings that
never end
never end
never end
and “leave him alone” is synonymous to a death threat,
they said it once, and they said it again,
I think they want me dead,
they think it's supposed to be easy,
like what I had with him will just fade away,
but they don’t understand
I spent six years loving him
and the words he spoke to me
are now the threads that bind my skin
and the blood that runs in my veins,
whispering of him incessantly
through the hallows of my heart 
echoing his name in every beat.
