Writers’ Weir: i take myself back

A poem submitted by reader Jasz Garrett.

stream of consciousness

i should be better than this

midnight onyx creek

everything has changed

dreaming of your soft blue eyes

i do not belong

raspberry headaches

i’m so tired of myself

shivering lost girl

you stole everything

but in this angelic dawn

i take myself back
