“it’s a sign that i’m drowning.”
“i stepped in two patches of fresh dirt.
it’s a sign that they’ll be digging my grave.”
“i saw the boy i’d lost my virginity to today.

for those of you who weren't informed of the party, NaPoWriMo stands for National Poetry Month, which occurs every April. I challenge all of you (+ myself) to submit a single poem, every single day of the month.
I tried last year and it did not go well
Hopefully I can somehow cram time for poetry in with all the schoolwork I'm getting.
I may or may not cheat and write ahead of timeBut get ready for some new updates, guys! If you haven't, check out my newest poem that I wrote for the amazing 1bookfish , and have a great day! If anyone wants to talk/update me on their lives feel free in the comments below much love.
