Today, I overflowed.

by Sai   Jul 3, 2018


I lied in bed all morning,
thinking about all the things
I could be doing, thinking
about all the things
I should be doing.

Later -

I watched the sun
set in my head until it took notice of me, and
within seconds, I am painted gold
in all the right places.

Later -

I reach for my pen; connect
the dots to reveal I am a constellation,
and I no longer bleed.

Later -

I hold myself in,
flooding from the inside
just so you'd never have to drown.

    I'm a sucker for a poem that seems like it was written by somebody on the same wavelength as me.
    A very thought provoking piece that hurtles then stops then hurtles again. I love the repitition of later to build tension and the imagery and darkness throughout struck a chord with me. I haven't read much of sais stuff but after this gem I shall be reading more. (10 points)
