    Now that I’ve thought of you. There’s no way I can stop. You have managed to occupy my mind fully. I wonder when will I occupy your heart

    there’s something soft in me, maybe. i want to let it live. i want to build it sturdy garden walls strong and stone, with room to grow. i want to let myself be fierce enough that something soft can live like moss in shade.

    YOUR HOUSE

    By Francine Witte

    “The street lamps, their hunched necks bowed in prayer, your car rust metal-red, dark as old blood, the porch with its raggedy wicker chair, where your grandfather sat for hours, the morning paper petaled into a flower at his feet.”

    READ THE FULL POEM and more from Francine Witte.

    Rongsokan Kompas

    Ada banyak jalan di ambang surup kota-kota yang masih terlihat pening, satu persatunya mengeraskan gedung -gedung tinggi yang dimadu keladi dan petisi

    Aku berjalan diantaranya menjarah marka yang berat ber-inang tali di sepatuku, lalu aku berdiri di selasar nomor satu

    Naik mimbar paduka diindera anak buah tangga, sepertinya aku sudah sampai di lantai ke-seribu

    Diatasku ada besi yang ditanam keatas langit, memang seperti itu ulah rongsokan kompas menelanjangi kakiku kemari

    Bahkan aku diselatan-kan pada gerombolan lelaki berkerah tinggi yang memukul tebing-tebing sisi timur tugu

    Mereka meneriaki benda mati, celakanya haus menang dari kesepian, tak ada nama mereka di redaksi tempo hari, paling kan segera ditanahkan oleh garis tepi frustasi kataku

    Aku ingin tertawa dan menangis antara bodoh dan pedar, kompas ini mengasingkanku melampaui sudut di siku persimpangan jalan

    Barat membisingkan risau selanjutnya, tapi kakiku terluka oleh kaca yang dihantam pemuda di celah penyeberangan jalan,

    Katanya belajar mendengki, belajar yang tuan tua tak petuahkan. karena hatinya ialah tersangka tragis kecelakaan batin katanya,

    Seperti ini kah isi naluri manusia? Tamak membenamkan laut di antara berat dadanya tapi menolak membuka gerbang maut

    Parahnya, malah sengaja menggemakan bahwa kematian akan lebih baik daripada arteri kecil yang kehilangan dirimu,

    Bahkan aku menjadi hara pada akar-akar yang membusuk di pematang bantaran. Katanya tidak punya dinding untuk membuat mural hari-hari kehilangan

    Tapi sebelumnya mereka menjadi harum di ujung periuk, Hingga akhirnya digagahi oleh gundah akan "esok kita mau makan apa?"

    "Untuk minta tolong saja tak sempat", katanya

    Usai itu aku dipulangkan ke utara, dibawah pohon diluar rumah membicarakan cinta yang masi muda, aku harap dia tak akan diranggas api atau gergaji suatu saat nanti

    Begitulah ulah liar manusia kan-nyatanya?

    Tapi yang penting aku sudah dirumah ibu,

    Aku sudah dirumah ayah

    Nadi pada lengan kota yang sama, dari kompas rongsokan menuju tahanan di sela jantung pakis yang terlalu tinggi dan menjadi tawanan seperempat naluri

    Yang kusebut di kotaku sendiri,

    Oleh-oleh empati akan kupelihara menjadi rayap untuk ego yang terlalu kolot

    Ayah ibu aku minta rongsokan kompas lagi

    Jalan-jalan madya di kota  ini akan kutandatangani diatas materi.

    Akan kutujukan pada Tuhan di langitku jauh sana, untuk mengirimkan gerbong-gerbong yang kosong

    Agar kereta bahagia tak akan terlewatkan lagi

    Is it still weird that I still think fondly of you?

    You sure were the worst roommate

    But the other times, they were true

    Dungeons and dragons and memes on the couch

    Camping and dancing and laughing out loud

    Maybe we just moved too far to fast

    But you got me so well that I thought it would last

    You made me feel cool and funny and brave

    We shared homemade presents that I still save

    Is it still weird that I still think fondly of you?

    You wouldn't talk about issues

    That ended us way too soon

    When your dog bit mine you wouldn't apologize.

    Because I asked you to load the dishes you used

    You'd storm to your room, you'd fret and you'd fume.

    I was always saying sorry, nothing was on you

    I worked just to avoid your next big boom

    I wonder if we'd still be friends if

    I hadn't rented you

    A room.

    #lizzywrites #this is just a little poem i made about a friend i used to have #the only friendship i've ever had that ended on a sour note #something made me think about her #in hindsight i kind of wonder if she had narcissistic personality disorder #but doesn’t everyone wonder that at some point about a person they've fallen out with? #i can't exactly say i'm unbiased #she was younger than me and had never had roommates #and i think she just wasn't ready for it #oh yeah and her dog literally drew blood on my dog's face #and she was mad that i kicked her dog to get her off #like umm #your dog wasn't listening to words and you weren't doing anything to get her off #so hell yeah imma kick her what else am i suppsed to do just let her maul my dog? #this dog was a solid tank of a pit bull who ran into walls daily so i garuntee you my kick didn’t hurt her #they didn't train or exercise the dog properly #and they didn't take action when she started displaying aggression #which is a huge issue when there's other pets in the house #they also wouldn’t clean up after themselves in the common area #and blew up on me saying i was controlling when i asked them to #basically didn't take responsibility for anything #and i tried to initiate roommate meetings where they would say everything was fine #but then blow up on me 2 days later for the same stuff we were trying to talk out #even said i was being controlling or acting like i owed them something for cooking #like bro i just offered you stew because I made a lof of it and feeding people is my love language #it's not that deep #anyways i've gotten along with every other roommate i've ever had #so at least it's not a pattern #and having at least one horrible roommate is kind of a right of passage in your 20's right? #it just sucks that i still miss the good parts of our friendship

    i’m drifting in and out of myself against my better wishes, or the wishes of my body— we would like, all of us to be certain who is acting. who it is that sings and how their voice is coming out— but i am not myself, or i am myself too much. it circles. i become a fractured prism, fractal.

    are there holy things about us? both of ourselves, and around us— written in the shape of the leaves against the sky, scrawled in how our fingers drift through fine and falling rain buried in the ashes left when some had come and gone.

    Choke me like you hate me, but you love me

    Lowkey wanna date me when you fuck me

    Touch me with the lights off and my chains on

    Baby I'm not the right one you should wait on

    The universe doesn’t always go along with the plans we have for ourselves. It’s frustrating but it’s okay. Perhaps the universe has a different plan for you.

    i am trying to let go of the bitterness. i do not keep my mother’s faith but i tell her teachings to myself while lonely, in the dark. i’d forgotten i was lonely. i almost wish to be alone again. I am trying to let go of the bitterness

    If only i was a mermaid

    the years i shed all day

    would be pearls

    and i would be rich forever.

    I will mourn you. The

    sky will sink into your grave.

    I will be left dark.

    Tell Me You Lied

    Wavy clouds,

    sheered that shows the moon

    Memories are gone,

    stars might show off soon

    Watching the sky,

    Wish I can fly

    To see you and touch you

    And tell you I love you

    Wish I can fly

    And go by your side

    To not tell you a lie

    But to stay 'til I die

    Tell me you lied

    Tell me it's not true

    Maybe you're just tired

    And you wanna try it too

    Try to work this on

    Commit and bring this on

    I really felt different

    But I know it's not wrong
