88 (who?)
sometimes I hate the idea
of talking

I rather eat the autumn
skies crushing cold air between my molars
and hiding shaky hands
between pages of dictionaries
and clickclickclicking sounds of typewriters

you asked me why I wrote poems
on the soles of my shoes
and I told you

it was because I wanted to
imprint myself on the earth
then I can create beauty
even if I am not
Sometimes, I wish I could just choke on those sharp blue cloudless skies

I'm honestly speechless, the impact this makes absolutely astounding. Thank-you for writing out exactly how I feel. No matter what anyone or the mirror tells you don't listen to them stranger, you're words hold beauty, and your voice is strong.

Thank you for the lovely comment, and I'm happy that you found the poem relatable if not a little sad but if I can offer some semblance of solace in my poetry then thank yo.

It's amazing, I could feel the crisp crunch pf a cool autumn breeze and picture the earth as a world covered in words. And as a note, to love is to be love, to make art is to be an artist, and to create beauty, one is beautiful.
