i don’t mean to be so bitter these days

i don’t mean to be so bitter these days

took the lemons outta my mouth
and drank lemonade instead
with just the right amount of sweetness that i borrowed from you

i’ll give my sugar back in the form of puckered kisses

planted the leftover seeds that slipped from between my fingers

wanted to name the future trees disappointment and failure
so they could prove me wrong with how tall they would grow
with branches that stretched out in every direction

i look forward to the summertime shade they will provide
on the hottest of days

to look up and see nothing but a green sky of leaves
and bright yellow stars that i could pluck
squeeze
and drink

please
lend me your sweetness so i can stop feeling so hateful towards people that just don’t matter anymore
