POETRY

Love is a hand clutching sand on a pitch-black, vapid, wind-Scattered beach

I need to taste your love, I need to be protected in your sheets, I need you to hold onto me until I know we exist, I need you to whisper the things into me, I need LOVE LOVE

EVEN IF IT ISN’T

ANYTHING AT

From you or I’ll just keep

Why am I so dumb scared sad and lonely

Why am I so dumb scared sad and lonely

Why am I so dumb scared sad and lonely
