Mel Green
22 October 2021

write a poem

when it comes to you

feel grateful

when you feel it

tell your person you love them

only when you mean it

experiment with psychomagic

grow beyond your walls

the old you is a phantom

and now you’re 8 feet tall

so proud of your mistakes

i ate them all for breakfast

i promised i wouldn’t give my heart away

i promised i wouldn’t be reckless

the fates lead the willing and drag the won’t

if you’re believing everything you’re thinking–
