uninspired_by_betteo
How do I write with these frantic fingers
Left index plugs tearing right aorta
Right hand holds closed ripping left ventricle

How do I write with this soft mind,
this bubble-lettered, arrow-through-heart, notebook doodle replacement.
Hopelessly, entirely, embarrassingly infatuated.
And how would I ever stop writing about yo
