19/30

if anything, you have been a lesson in layers
but i loved you even before
you quietly dismissed
every itching dread

it was a risk i was willing to take
after all i have always believed
in the little little maybe
and sometimes in bigger
more certain things like:
there will be journals to fill
and scabs to pick

and besides
heartbreak, next to
chocolate and free-verse poems
is my favorite indulgence
