Let’s Be Awkward, Together.

Come,
let us overthink things together
worr
y with me about tomorrow
Cosign my dreams
understand my nightmares
let us have inside jokes
and laugh at the wrong times

Come,
let us hold hands
let us dance against the rhythm
Go to a Coldplay concert
and binge watch every Tom Hanks movie

Come,
let us make poetry, we should write it
we should love it, we should be it

Come,
let us sing with extremely false falsettos
let’s be awkward, together.

    The neighbours will say “They’re an awkward pair” and they’ll be right.

    Loved this piece. And I hope there’s an embodied muse behind it.

  2. Come,
    let us make poetry, we should write it
    we should love it, we should be it

    This is the kind of poem that makes you fall for that boy who hasn’t yet got a job, that boy your mum warned you about 🙂

    Wooooh! I had to scream while reading this. I had to read this aloud. This is nice! Just the sort of poetry I like to read. Where has your poetry been hiding? This poem is so deep, I want to hug its simplicity and whisper nice things to its ears.

    Lovely.
