NOTE TO SELF // Oh Anna

by Anna Olivia Böke, 2016

 

I wish I was an easy girl

easy as a normal word

 

wish I had an easy mind

silent, still, in sanity

 

It’s a bitter normal world

loud, insanely

as can be

Oh Anna, don’t get bitter when

the words are un-eased and shimmering

untamed, re-phrazed, still glimmering

in the head

 

Don’t get sore, don’t be angry when

the thoughts, they run and run

one by one away from you

they run, run, run, run, run

 

Catch it!

Scratch it!

(If you can)

Though help won’t be received

the thoughts swim way too deep

 

Oh Anna, don’t get bitter when

you’re lost inside the sea

lost

inside of me
