poetry by the nyghtlie poet


these words i write are just like everyone else’s 

but when i write them with my emotions they become a piece of me

they don’t belong to you like they do me

inscribed in each stroke against the paper forming the letters tells the detailed story of my pain

when you read past the words devouring every feeling from my broken box

you too will feel the cuts from the glass as you try to pick up the pieces

you can’t fix me

my words are only here to help me understand rationally the irrational feelings

i’m numb now 

you can empathize with tears

you can relate to pain 

but still these are my words

i hold the pieces of my box in my hands slowly over time finding the beauty in what i had left 

every so often someone would come + smack my hands

shards of love would shatter against my flesh 

ripping through me 

i am now naked

vulnerably undressed
