if only

if only

they didn’t know

just how this goes

algorithms

threads of silk

torn at hearts

sewn up

broken arteries

will they mend

like roads

they know

with scars

written on

& in

this mortal skin

they coil around

the night

repeat again

if only 

they didn’t know just how this goes […]

if only

Authour’s note: I’m reposting if only in honour of getting to 1000 likes today.

I really like this work. & it marks the last few weeks of making my dream of sharing my writing in a way which I felt would be the way to do it.


I knew blogging poetry could be great, but your reception of my poetry has really floored me. It’s been magic really. 📓🎶💜
