This is Plagiarism: 'I am Trying to Tell You'

 Nikki Pilkington (@The Pilk)6 years, 2 months ago

i am trying to tell you

you can’t test the ocean
without warming it with your hand

that jupiter is a star that never happened

that reincarnation exists
and when i grow up and die
i want to be a mountain

i am trying to tell you that black holes
hum B flat
57 octaves down

that when a meteor strikes the moon
it rings like a bell

i am trying to tell you sometimes
you can be too careful

that the average color
of the universe
is #FFF8E7

and they went and called it
‘cosmic latte’

i am trying to tell you this disappoints me

that sometimes i need to be left alone

i am trying to tell you
there is no mathematical possibility
for everybody to have a soulmate i’m sorry

some people fit together exactly
like they say they do

and it’s hard to explain how their atoms
will never really touch

i am trying

i am trying and this
disappoints me.
