Desperation

You are important
I wrote you the most
terrifying poem I could

Writing to you
attempting to break your skin
breaking my heart

It was the only thing I could do
foolishly hoping my texuality
could compensate for body

I'd have left you my ashes
if it would mean something

I can't even satisfy
my longing for you
through these multitudinous
attempts at imprisoning you
in poetry

There is nothing
that will do the trick
