dopey saturday morning stream of consciousness

they’re moving away
slowly
the words
and it’s you
i think
pulling the
string
but i can’t be
mad
really
finding myself
instead
thinking about
you
in braided pigtails
why
i’m not sure
why
that image
or why
you
today
but it’s raining
and i want
to be inside
you
may have
never worn
your hair
that way
but i kind of
want to make you
scream
the words so
i can write
them
today
there are thoughts
to be shared
there are feelings
to be
hinted at
i want to let
them out
so i can move
so i can bend
you over
there
stop pulling the words
away from me
but i can’t be
mad
really
since
it was
you
who
gave me
the words
in the first place

    I really like this one. For some reason, the braided pigtails were quite funny to me.

    I like how you play with the words.

    Perhaps they were given to you as much as they were extracted from you

    like a game you didn’t know you were playing.
