Your feeble construal

Of that which we embody,

Request that you desist

The placement of our names

Throughout  your casual

Verse, so that we may

Be no further defamed.

Your understanding in

We very much value

This sensitive matter.

In a thoughtful light.

i have an unconscious list of words that will stop me from reading poetry. and geez how do i love thee.....the countless mundane ways. and lovesickness-bah.

'i trace...' bah
'pon... use the whole frigging word


poems about cutting can be put to rest. i understand the pain, but get a diary with a lock and a key.

thank you
