IM HERE, IM QUEER, AND IM full of existential fear

pen without having it tremble in anticipation to scrawl
out your name. How binding it feels to know that even
a poem dedicated to your current lover will always somehow
trace back to an ex; invisible threads linking hidden messages
inside the ‘I love you’s’, converting them for your eyes to see
as ‘I miss you’s’. The inner sections of my fingers are
calloused from holding a cigarette to my mouth instead of a
pencil because sometimes I feel that’s less self-destructive
than dedicating another goddamn poem to you. Your touch
was like a brand on my brain, a seal I could never distract
myself from because it burns just as hot today as the night
you pressed your scolding touch to my heart.
On second thought, I hope you don’t because this lingering
agony is something I wouldn’t wish upon the devil himself,
and worse yet,
They only ask how you’re doing to hear you say ‘Fine’
I learnt that I was supposed to feel fine…
