A Break-Up Haiku for You

I gave you my heart
In origami, essays
Through my margin veins

When history papers
Were not enough love for you
I gave chemistry

Macbeth: too tragic
You preferred the comedies
I was your own joke

You laughed about me
I know that that's the harsh truth
I'm not that in love

Origami veins
Can not cover both my ears
I can hear the lies.

I'm smart to my face
I'm stupid behind my back
My back of paper

I am made of words
In origami flowers
And I'm done with you

I've been reading poems for a day straight and this is the first poem I liked. It is raw and exposed, and it is amazing. I LOVE how you compare your back to paper- as delicate and easily ripped, however brilliant enough that you could see through their act. I am surprised this is not published. Anyway: amazing.
