there are too
many pills in this
world and too
much misery in
the human heart
but that didn't mean
that you could just
up and leave when
we both know it
could have gotten better
and i miss you like
a wolf misses her pack
or a goddamn dragon misses
her fire and i'm sorry
that i can't give you
a bouquet of jasmines
(they were your
favorite, after all,
because that was
the only princess
with a pet tiger)
because poppies are
too cliche and i'm
sorry i wasn't there
when all you needed
was a hug and for someone
to whisper "it's okay,
you're perfect enough
for me, don't listen
to that junkie bitch
who just happened to
give birth to you" and did
you know that i'm still waiting
for a reply to that one
email about the world's
best puns because fuck,
there's a stubborn part
of me that still refuses to
believe that you're gone.
I really can't.

So this is just words strung together as I think about you.

I miss you.

I wish I could have been there.

I know I should try to forget but I just need to write this for you.

Well this must be the most real poetry I've ever seen. Wow.

This is the only poem that has ever made me break down crying. It's beautiful. If you ever need anyone to talk to about this, or anything for that matter, just message me.
That title makes the most sense out of any title I've seen today

I could just feel the emotion behind it!Waaaah! I am sorry
o and simply an opinion from some random person, however i feel compelled to state that i strongly
feel / think that you "should try to forget." that's a little weak for my taste, to borrow a phrase, and from your strung-out words (no pun intended, seriously) that forgetting is way too weak for your taste, as well.
~~ shrugs ~~

--keep on,
i have to state that i love the title. the rest is so personal, it isn't for me to comment except to state that your enjambment, that your line breaks are well-done.

Oh gosh...

I've never known this kind of sorrow, so my "I feel for you" must be so empty... but for what it's worth, I do. :(
