’11:42 p.m.’ (New Poem)

I’m going to Dallas tomorrow. Technically later today. I won’t be back ’til Sunday and I won’t have time to post while I’m there, so I’ve been worrying about what I’d post before I left.

I was like, “I want to write a poem, but I don’t have anything to write about.”

Then life was like, “Oh, I’ll give you something to write about.”

So here we are:

11:42 p.m.
By Maggie McGinity

Like some kind of rabies,
These thoughts and these  ‘maybe’s
Are driving me insane.
One thing ’bout crazies,
Know calling one ‘baby’
Wears upon the brain;
And growin’ up slowly
Ain’t gonna hold me
To keeping this private pain.
Though I’m not the only
With knowledge so lonely,
Somehow, I’m trapped again.

These debts and these dailies,
The failings so flail-y
Are driving me inane.
One thing ’bout crazies,
Know calling one ‘baby’
Wears upon the sane;
And growin’ up slowly
Ain’t gonna hold me
To leaving this private pain.
Although I’m the only
Who sees this shame wholly,
In it, I’m trapped again.”

Quotes sandwich:

“I’d run through the desert, I’d walk through the rain
Get you into trouble, and take all the blame
I’d paint you a picture, write you a song
And I’d do it all over if I did it all wrong”-“If You Told Me To” by Hunter Hayes

“You say…
Love is a temple,
Love the higher law.
You ask me to enter,
But then you make me crawl,
And I can’t be holding on
To what you got
When all you got is hurt”
-“One” by U2

“Maybe this is something I’ll never be,
But I’ll be right here ’til you tell me.”
-“If You Told Me To” by Hunter Hayes
