Riley welch is a poet from texas living in colorado. She posts three original poems a week. 


We circled the block
over and over again.
I felt like
My phone floated over my fingers and slipped away.
I saw lights on in the doorway, but no one was there.
To me it felt hopeless, I couldn't face them,
or anyone else.
The coffee didn't perk me up and
I drowned in shower under the weight of the air.
