Getting up was hard.
I weigh more than I look.
My shoulders weigh most.

Look before you leap.
It’s a long way to the end.
Please bring a cushion.

Leave me a message.
I’ll get back to you someday,
But it’s not today.

Please say something back.
I loved silence, but not now.
My ears are bleeding.

I need to tell you.
It’s all I can say to you:
I am so sorry.

Pierce both of your lungs.
Scream until you spit on my face.
Tell me how you feel.

I see blue in shards,
But at least you still looked good
When you broke my heart.

I have said four words,
Commit them to memory,
And hit every heart.

The hallways smelled like
Formaldehyde. I didn’t
Know who was dying.

There is an elephant.
It is sitting on my chest.
I can’t breathe at all.

I never took dance,
But my hands know how to move.
They shake really well.

Water has meaning.
It should mean serenity,
But tears aren’t serene.

I am exhausted
In every sense of the word.
Would you tuck me in?
