Cliches I Have Dated
Anna collected stardust
like pennies, except
pennies are worth something.
Claire had ink
running through her veins; dead,
from an unsterilized needle.
Robin had birdbones
strung together on windchimes.
Sarah’s eyes were always
to the sky, and never
on me.
Lizbeth took my breath away
with every punch to the stomach.
Rosalie had too many things
in her ribcage; emotional adrenaline
triggered her arrhythmia.
Emily left me
for a boy with starrier freckles.
I am one cat away
from a stereotype, or one girl
closer to a happy ending.

they don’t tell you that
one day,
sisyphus just let the rock roll down
and collect his body
like dust.
they don’t tell you that you can still walk
with holes in your legs
and you can still love
when your heart has already been ripped open.
they don’t tell you that
you are 75% of an ocean
that is six miles deep
and eats ships alive,
75% of the water that shapes canyons,
75% of the rain that drowned the earth
for forty days and nights.
they don’t tell you that
your body is made of the same carbon
as stars
and diamonds.
they don’t tell you that
there is a fire burning inside of you
or that your bones are stronger than steel
or that the things that fuel you
fuel tigers, too.
the greeks and romans wrote stories about
how strong you were
and you are icarus,
and you died laughing
because they didn’t tell you
how beautiful the world really was
even as it was swallowed
by the waves.

Novelist in progress and closet poetess.

I spend a lot of time reading, daydreaming and drinking too much tea.

I created this page in order to share my writing, read other people's work and exchange feedback. You can find my main art account over on :iconazure-oblivion:

Thank you for visiting.
Hi all!

So... I tried to participate in NaPoWriMo (or National Poetry Writing Month if anyone doesn't know what it is). I figured it would be a piece of cake, especially as I'm a NaNoWriMo veteran (a poem a day must surely be easier than writing 1,666 words a day), but I let myself get behind while I was on a trip and didn't bother to catch up. So yeah, I'm a failure. That said, I've written a few poems I'm pleased with (amongst a few mediocre/terrible ones) and I may continue to write a couple over the rest of the month and maybe use some of the prompts in future, so all is not lost. The poems I consider somewhat successful have been posted here.

For anyone interested, check out

Welcome to :iconwriters4life::hug: If you have any questions, don't be afraid to ask myself or refer to the group page.
One thing I like to say to new members (in case they didn't read the new member info on our page) is that all submissions sent to us throughout the week will be sent out on Mondays and Thursdays -so if you submit some work and it isn't sent out right away, no worries it will be. Other than than that enjoy being in the group and happy reading and writing.

Just wanted to thank you for the watch!

Also, since I'm currently focusing on music, I was wondering if you'd be interested in listening/sharing my music?

If you are, I can link you to where you can find that stuff!
