I fell in love at a young age
with the way words danced
off of tongues and paper
and made people feel
things they couldn't feel on their own
I wanted to make people feel, too

I fell out of love
with everything and everyone
around me, with the way tongues
danced around but never said
anything worth remembering
I want to be worth remembering

I felt I wasn't
and it wreaked havoc on my brain
and my body
so I turned to pens
because putting knives on paper
kept them off my skin
