If it didn’t cost me
I would share
so much more
of who I know I really am
you must pay
for the privilege
to know my body
while I recover the cost.
A Special Note to Those Who Doubt that I Write My Poems
Recently, a few drifters, after reading my work, have asked me “did you write that?”
A note to serve as clarification: all of my poems are original works written by me.
It is the only way I know how to communicate my pain, in its purest and uncut form.
This note is not directed towards my regular readers, who can clearly see the “~Marlies Vonn” at the end of each poem I write. I give credit if I am quoting another author.
Thank you for reading and thank you for your time.
Your poems are painfully beautiful and poignant, as is this one you wrote. Anyone who asks if you write them yourself probably doesn’t know how to tie their shoes.
