*This is a poem book*


It was a starry Tuesday night from October. Boy met boy. Boys clicked right away, and spent together a night they’d treasured among their precious memories. It was the start of something bright. Something exciting. Something new. And within the curse of a few weeks, they fell in love. The connection was magical, as if it was almost instant. As if it was meant to be all along. As if, all the boys that came before, were just the pattern they needed to take in order to find each other. And they did. They found each other. And it was perfect.

But we’re talking about young love. Therefore, this is not a tale for the ages. It is not the greatest love story ever written. This one is not meant for the big screen. This story includes naiveté feelings, disappointment and deception. This is a real story, with real situations and real feelings. This is the tale of the boy that lost it all when the other boy broke his heart, and how he eventually got back on his feet.

These are the words I wrote during the course of the relationship; from the insecurities that were born because of the other boy’s coldness and distant nature, to the eventual heartbreak and the aftermath of the poorly-handled situation. These verses represent the rise and fall of the greatest love story that could have been, yet it remains and it will always remain as another needed mistake in order to achieve personal growth.

These poems are written from the perspective of a not-a-boy-not-yet-a-man that in the isolation that comes with loneliness, found a way to put his feelings into paper, and eventually narrate a story that right now, he’s deciding to share with you. So, these are my most personal, darkest thoughts. My raw, honest emotions. These are the things I thought about, while I was hosting this pity party for one.
