Untangle Me - Poem by Lauren Miller

Heart strings pull this way and that
Till they snap
Pain you've never known
A knot in your stomach that has grown
From intangible things
Like bitter endings and sweet nothings
Unraveling slowly, twisting and burning
Till I'm begging you to please
Untangle me
Unattainable me
Strangling me
With lines of intent to get me under your skin
and under your bed sheets
or mine
Was that my line?
To keep you
Did that one go straight up my nose
Till it melted my brain
Got me imagining all these ridiculous things
Like hands wrinkling over time
And laugh lines carving slowly
And my love killing mostly
Like the disease that I am
Until you're begging me to please
Give you the cure
But that shit's unknown
Start a fund to discover
What you already know
Heartbreaks not a disease
It's an art form
Got it perfected for you and me both
Never needed a fund to research that method
I was simply born with it
The knowledge to gain, and remain
and then burn all the beautiful things
that make me feel whole
Until they ache, and they break
Piece by piece
Crumbling slowly, cremated your mind
Shoved it in a jar, and observed it
Until you became deformed
and that’s what tortured me most
Was that I obtained the power to
Destroy myself
Untangle me
Unattainable me
Strangling me
My own hands around my throat
