don't.

stay away from
pencils and pens.
don't look
at keyboards
or at blank pages
of notebook paper.

don't submit
to the emerald sigh of
vellichor,
the shredded sheets
of everything,
everything you've worked
your whole life to run away from.

don't live in the moment.
let love and fear float by,
just a skimming whisper,
because a whisper
is better than nothing.
a whisper is better
than the brittle falling-apart
of kairosclerosis.

suffer from catoptric tristesse,
but don't think about it
(for too long, anyways.)
look at the mirror
but never look yourself
in the eye,
because who knows what you've become?

don't write what you're feeling.
you don't even know what you're feeling.
leave the pencil alone,
because the pencil will not submit
to the slow,
careful splintering
of your life.
wow, it's been a while since i've posted anything. i feel inactive. anyways, most of the inspiration for this poem comes from www.dictionaryofobscuresorrows…. it's suuuuch a good website wow i am in love i think.

i'm kinda jumping on the bandwagon, huh? i'm sorry for not posting a lot recently. i procastinate a lot.

i actually menat for this poem to be spaced kind of awkwardly, so it'd be uneven, and 'splintering'. i dunno, does that even make sense? i'm rambling. ;u;

well

just going to leave this here (feedback? i'd appreciate it)

bye

I was going to try and pick one part of this that I like the best to complement you on, but... one turned into two turned into five turned into the whole poem, so... lovely work, it's very good!  Thank god you went through a temporary lapse of judgement somewhere along the way and became a writer c;
