Denim Jacket

Denim Jacket

A Poem by Leah Willough

Did I deserve it?


My darling you’re so pretty!

Your hands were carved by stars

Your lips they taste like almonds

You’ve got syrup in your heart

You have a denim jacket

That has more pins than patches

And on cold winter nights 

You let me wear your jacket

Now I’m covered in your fingerprints

Dripping with your booze

I am your broken bottle

Your artist and your muse

You kiss me on the lips

You say it was worth the wait

But your mom thinks I’m a w***e

And your daddy thinks you’re straight

You call me your experiment

You let me fall apart

You leave before the sunrise

And blame my breaking heart

I get blood on my hands

When I try to stitch my wounds

While you walk away clean

Saying “It’s not me, it’s you.”

I know you’re no good for me

I know I shouldn’t stay

But I like the way you smile

And your heartbeat on my face

And that f*****g denim jacket?

I think you’d better trash it

‘Cause I hate those s****y pins

And I hate your f*****g jacket

My neck begins to break

From that necklace that you gave me

‘Cause you don’t want me to hate you

You’d rather that I hate me

My darling you’re so pretty

And pretty’s all you are

You can’t stand on your own

You can’t love when it’s hard

Wow that was really good. You really feel the emotions in this. I really feel sorry for her.

I tried writing poetry and it sounds like it was written by Barney or one maybe one of the kids on his show lol.
