An Unwanted Thought (Poem #97)

Your thoughts about me

mainly consists

of deep breaths

and long pauses


I am that dreadful sigh

between a truth and a lie

I am the promise you failed to keep

the candle you allowed to drip


I am the oath your forgot to say aloud

I am the echo of a horrible sound


I am the weed on a flower filled ground

I am your high hopes

you wish could’ve stayed low


I am the thought elsewhere

no one else would find

because no matter how unwanted

I know I’ll stay in your mind

Just reading and writing my way out of this messy adult life! I have transitioned from having piles of notebooks stacked underneath my bed from writing on the internet and allowing people worldwide to read.
