#NationalPoetryMonth – Day 2



I cannot be your experiment
that thing you test and tease
in the search for yourself
trying to determine
whether you can love honestly
whether you are worthy of such
in return
I have told you time and again
you can
you are
it is not my problem
you choose to play deaf

April is National Poetry Month and to celebrate – inspired by that badass word warrior Jason Reynolds – I’m going to post a poem every day. They won’t be perfect, they never are, but they’ll be here, every day of April. I hope you stop by and enjoy the words and maybe even feel moved to share some of your own.
