Playlist

A Poem

I find a reason to listen to this playlist,

built from unrequited love.

the first lines of ‘Creep’ crawl into my ears

and I swear all I can think of

is your laugh

and how your eyes twinkle

like little stars

behind windows

i find myself wishing on them

to grant me just one wish

maybe a kiss

maybe for me not to be a riddle

maybe for me to belong here

where you are

as I wish upon those stars

I find a reason to listen to this playlist

of songs that remind me of you

the first lines of ‘Creep’ crawl into my ears

‘cause I wish I could be who you wanted

 

all the time.

This poem is from my self-published poetry War of Will, and can be found in our shop and Apple Books.
