Are You Ready For Another Bad Poem?

Someone once told me
That the best poems are written drunk
But all I can think of
Is the pounding in my head
And the aching in my heart
Reminding me that the one thing
I crave more than anything
Is unattainable
I can’t write in flowery language
Because I don’t have any pretty words
I want to write beautiful metaphors involving ocean waves
And the hum of bees in the summer
And compare them to how much I miss him
But all I have are scrambled thoughts
And fragments of the English language
