This is How I Save Myself

Your name, I whisper like hushed lullabies
Trying not to notice the crack in my voice

Every time I do so.
I attempt to make lovely things

Out of pain and misery and tragedies
That seethe my insides;

I try not to wake the monster that
Sleeps within my soul

But you have always been a ghost,
And so I turn you into poetry.
