Hello I'm Hannah Beth and i'm 19. I'm a poet and an artist and queen of the bloggers.

This is what I know:
when the clock struck zero you were alert 
and trying to touch the underside of my heartbeat.
I let you peak, but I said,
"dry up before you touch me"
and my stomach was racing yours
into the freefall. 

This is what I was told:
when a poet says he loves you,
he can’t mean it.
You will be left cleaning his vomit
stains out of bedsheets
and he will say, “oh, isn’t that neat?”
when you show him the scars inside your sketchbook.
Prick your finger on a cactus,
that condescending prick:
he’ll beg you to suck his dick, and then drown you
when you don’t.

And this is what I heard:
you cannot love humans as deeply as words.
Anyone anything like you is dangerous
so it will end
with a flaming fist
so it will end
with a black eye
and a suicide pact-
you’ve both been dying to die 
since you were old enough to know that you were breathing.

This is what I see:
limp hands and lips bleeding
from feeding on shards of glass for so long.
A brown square of grass to call home
and our moms are crying,
"where did we go wrong?"

This is what I know:
when the clock struck zero you were digging into my gut.
I am only afraid because I love you so much
and I cannot keep up
with the freefall.
