excerpt from my journal no. 7

This one is an oldie, but a goodie! I wrote this before spring break last year, when I had a horrible viral infection after going to two concerts in a row. I really love this poem and the emotion that it holds.

falling ill

i have recently fallen ill
and i don't know if it is because he left
or because the weather keeps changing
all i know is that my body aches for anything
but these white pills and nasal spray

it's like a windstorm that's so strong 
you keep falling over
or maybe lightning hitting you right in the chest
or it's like that time he left and you couldn't sleep on your back
because you could see his side of the bed

i don't quite care that i've eaten

every single type of soup the world has to offer 
or that i could cook you a million different dishes
because i've watched the cooking channel
for 5 days straight

the only way i think this illness would go away

is if you came back
and held me as i drank my tea with honey
and coughed my brains out

i wish you would rub my back

as i complained about being cold
or being fatigued
i just wish you'd come back

I hope you loved the emotional feelings this poem brought to you, I also hope that I can find some inspiration soon so I can write more quality poems like this one. 

xoxo, Aubrey
