Unintentional Hipster

I just like wearing women's jeans, not eating animal products and writing shit nobody cares about. It was an accident, I swear

Poem of the day: 22/06/2012

Even though it’s technically the 23rd, I’m still awake from the 22nd so counting it as that date. And as I promised, regardless of how embarrassing it may be, here’s the first poem I’ve publicly shared since I was sixteen. Enjoy!

 

I remember that you

as a child –

still fresh-faced and unburdened by your world

had a special little jewellery box

filled only with your most special things-

things only for you.

 

And as you grew older,

barely still a child

but still enamoured with the world

held onto this special little jewellery box

filled only with your most special things-

things only for you.

 

I remember when the yellow-hearted thieves

saw you no longer a child

start to float away from the world,

grasping for your special little jewellery box

laden only with your most special things-

things only for you.

 

And as you drifted ever upwards

bearing no more semblance to this child,

no longer a part of their yellow world

try to damage that special little jewellery box

packed only with your most special things-

things only for you.

 

And as you now stand before me,

a child in knight’s armour

again enamoured with your world,

I think that it’s time to open your special little jewellery box,

still full of your most special things-

things only for you.
