30-Day Poetry: 02

Day 2—Who was the last person you texted? Write a five line poem to that person.


Never mind my previously treating you so horribly.
Never mind our families; you are the brother I have chosen.
Forget the money struggles and the lost sexual tension.
Never mind that just five lines isn’t nearly enough.
Despite everything, you’re still here.

Prompts here
