Terrible, Self-Indulgent “Poetry” Vol. 2

She (8/29/17)

Hair like fire

Eyes like coal

And a tongue like flowing lava

 

Heart like ice

Gaze like stone

And a soul like a glacier’s cold

 

Skin like paper

Bones like twigs

And a body like uncooked dough

 

Veins of blue

Lips of red

A face with the traits of her mother

 

Tears held back

Smile forced on

Scars left by the hate of her father

 

She is broken

She is bruised

But she goes on, surviving and seething

 

If We Fall in Love (8/30/17)

My favorite flowers are daffodils

But only the yellow ones

The white ones are boring

You should know this if we fall in love

 

I don’t want a diamond ring

I want a moonstone poison ring

‘Til death do us part; our joke

You should know this if we fall in love

 

I’m kind of broken and scarred

And a total mess of a person

Literally and figuratively

You should know this if we fall in love

 

I get angry over nothing

And sadder than I can explain

But there’s goodness in me

You should know this if we fall in love

 

I am silly and serious

Both scary and scared

Never good or pretty enough

You should know this if we fall in love

 

I don’t know how to be loved

But I know I can love

I promise to try to deserve it

You should know this

If we fall in love
