I know what that means -
Endless restless nights,
Between caring too much and not enough;
There's just so much stuff
To drill in!
And the threat of failure
Hangs over you like a fairytale curse
Because there's nothing worse
Than not being good enough.
But let me tell you this -
There's more to life,
More to you
Than A B C D E;
Exams don't measure your worth.
Can't you see?
You are so much more
Than the number they assign you.
Love yourself this exam season.
But don't tear yourself apart
By pushing yourself clean off the edge.

for a splinter of a moment, I did.
When you snapped your teeth shut
around my tongue,
when you tugged your head back
and rammed my shoulders
with the heels of your hands to jolt us apart
when you clicked
those crimson stubs closed again
over the vulnerable chunk of meat
I'd foolishly granted you access to -
when you did all of this
biting through tendon and taste buds
until finally you got what I wanted in the first place,
me spilling my heart to you,
all over your precious white rug,
but I knew, before my heart cracked
trying to pump air to my disorientated thoughts,
I knew I shouldn't have said anything at all.
