Poetry: iTrapped

iTrapped

wilted flowers bloomed

boden yummy posed in half a jam jar of sugar water looking

photoshop glossy

page beautiful this is all as hard as it gets

exhausted they hang their petal heads

*failing*

you love me you love me not you loved me not *bastard*

the dandelion clock says it’s time for cooking clog dance for the cog automaton circus

win some candyfloss

*champion* the buttercup glows with sun reflections

under yer chin you certainly know what side of yer bread is buttered on and you say

cleanliness is next to godliness therefore

housework is godliness

*believe*

the daisy chain is complete

*locked*

you love me you love me not

probably never did

but i’ll never wear a crash helmet

or a hi-vis jacket i’ve better fashion sense than that

even though you’ve become a child

proof container for all my pills

prescribed for the benefit of my <3

*unobtainable*

i still think of you

three times a day

still think you love me still know you loved me not
