it's a curse.
it doesn't apply to me
i feel the pain in every
tweet about a messy breakup
or instagram post about a dead uncle.
i relate to
the edgy quotes and the lovesick poems.
the fictional struggles and
the all-too-real wars.
i relate to it all,
yet i have nothing new to name.
i have nothing to say that can make you feel me
the way i feel your words
even if they're superficial.
i have nothing to say that can properly convey
the borrowed feelings i'm
the problem is
most people won't let you borrow anything
unless it's shit.
so all i have
is a bunch of negativity
that people generously donated to me
to fill the void with more darkness.
no one wants to take it back.
