A Poetic Subtweet

art by jiaakuann


if I do not like you or do not love you,
keep your trivialities away from me.

you don't even know my favorite color
yet you use your paintbrush to project all your insecurities onto my canvas...

until I am the same color as you:
dark, dark blue.

taking every breath became my own personal olympics,
while you critiqued the way I exist,
too loudly for you. 

I was thinking about killing myself
while you were screaming over the dust of the earth.

I would never wish anything bad upon you,
and my reasoning is simple. 

I already know you're never going to experience true love, true friendship, or true happiness. 

And maybe,
just maybe,
that's why you put so much effort into trying to take mine away.
