Poem for a girl with cooling blood

jpundercroft:

was he your first choice

or was he just the back up plan

sitting on the back burner

always a sure thing

American Wifi

jpundercroft:

It’s like we’re on this bus

that’s going no where

and you can’t break the feeling

you’re stealing

seconds minutes hours and

precious moments of time

you can’t

bring back

and we’re striving

surviving

just getting by

on gasps of oxygen

on cheeseburgers
