I’ve mastered the art of shutting people off.
So my school has this thing where we give offerings to our mascot, Testudo, during finals week because legend has it that he’s pretty lucky.
And it’s this pretty cool tradition. But now, well, I think it may be getting a little out of hand….
the problem with burying
someone else’s skeletons
inside of your body
is that, someday, something
might begin to grow from them.
I kept you more than skin deep,
and now I can’t silence the secrets
you whisper from within me,
a constant chatter cacophony,
a clanging windchime frequency
of your sternum sounding
frighteningly soft against mine
with every single heartbeat.
I’ve often wondered
what would have happened
if I had been able
to just let you go easily;
I guess I’ll never know.
forgive us our trespasses
don’t date anyone who isn’t proud of you
girls wearing boxers is such a frickin’ turn on. along with girls wearing beanies. and girls wearing plaid shirts. and girls wearing tank tops. and girls in general.
