I Opened My Heart, it's All Over This Page.

Gossip. {Poem}

5766506970_64806a7180_z

Did you hear?
Have you heard?
Wait—am I being talked about?

Gossip spreads like sickness.

You’re writing about me, they say.
You’re writing about her, they say.
You’re writing about him, they say.

I’m writing about my truth, I say.
We all should, I say.

Meanwhile,
Gossip spreads like sickness.
Infecting us one by one.

Throw poison darts.
Throw salty insults.
Throw convoluted criticisms.

I can take it.

It hurts, but
I know how to duck.
I know how to not give a fuck.

Meanwhile,
Gossip spreads like sickness.

Isn’t there more to talk about
Besides
Our petty preconceived notions?
Our half-assed assumptions?
Our pathetic non-truths?

I’m writing my complete and utter truth
I’m baring my heart and soul
I’ll never stop.
And you shouldn’t either.

Let’s screw gossip
And detox ourselves from the poison, stat.

Gossip is pointless.
Truth is infinite.

Let’s talk about truth for a change.
