I work at an ice cream store now
where the most complicated thing
is a large milkshake,
and then every day i go home to write poems
that I think people read…
But unfortunately there’s too much
that can’t be put on the page.
Like, how do I convince a boy
that I’ve loved for 13 months
that I don’t think I love him anymore?
Even though he’s done nothing wrong,
and I have a bad habit of coming home
and missing him,
yet every time I say I love you it sounds like a lie?
What do I do?
When I don’t want to leave the one I love
but need to let go
Gosh it’s so much easier
to keep making milkshakes…
At least they’re less messy than my head.
