i am so tired of sad cliches:

your hands are peeling away
my ribs, 
splinters
my heart is in a million pieces
my love is a hollow tree
and you are knocking
on my collarbones.
it is pale.

write me something beautiful.

serenade me
with all the rhymes your mother told 
so you could remember
but they’ve been forgotten
since your father left

i am a shadow,
you are the sky
/
an open window,
a closed door

everything is amaranthine
and i am drowning
in the red

write me something meaningful.

breathe out yesterday 
and tomorrow
we are birds
on open wing
drifting into empty horizons.
the sunset burns.

i am a storm,
you are dirt
/
silver clouds,
heavy shoes

nothing lasts forever 
and i am hoping
this isn’t true

write me something beautiful.

i am so tired.
