Unsighted (Poem #99)

Written within my skin

is jealousy’s thick rhythm

another scene after a hundred times

I was left alone with a shadow

that’s no one else but mine

Skipping from guy to guy

falling deep then falling out

when someone better passes by

you are the lighthouse

they are the ships


Allured by you

they all start spitting vows

and your name

forever stayed on their lips


But I, my friend, am the last piece at the end

I’m someone hardly they could find

but easy to say nevermind


Written within this stack of jealousy

is the hope that despite your alluring light

despite my state of being out of sight

someone would take the risky road

ignore you, then find me.

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.
