A Poem by Cat



We are sitting in the backseat of my CRV.

Every word out my mouth a papercut I’m sorry, paper cut don’t leave me, papercut it’s my fault and you, the papercut promise I’ll change and you never do.

You wrap me into your arms fold me into your embrace and in this moment

I do not want you in these edges

I do not want you in these creases

In this moment

I do not want you.

Coercing me into wrinkled up pages

You fold me into a swan, a box, a crane

And in this moment

Resistance is futile

“Don't act like you don’t want it too”

One last no and I turn into a crumpled paper ball,

Smushed into silence so you stop

And realize that it’s time to go

I roll on over to you

If it meant you wouldn’t leave

You leave regardless

And every night after that

I curl myself back into my ball

into elbows and knees

Bent,

But never broken
At least, not anymore.

Gosh, I love your poetry...the strength in your depth of knowledge is astounding...I love the analogies used in paper cut, and the theme of you feeling like that piece of paper...crumpled and at times defeated...you described relationships in general and difficult it is to maintain...awesome poem. :)

Your passion sets this poem on fire. Super creative in it's delivery. Internally a war rages on keeping us off balance. Emotional writing well executed.

I liked this poem a lot. Real life places and thoughts.
"I do not want you in these edges
I do not want you in these creases
In this moment
I do not want you. "
The above lines solid and true. I liked the deep thoughts leading to the logical ending. Thank you Cat for sharing your amazing poetry.
