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.
