I love reading and writing (obviously)

have I bit my tongue one too many times?
have I said it all the way I really meant to?"

light as a feather; strong as an ox

her complexion is pale
her arms like twigs
frail as glass
like one strong wind 
could shatter her

her heart is a stone
eyes poisoned with bitter grief
impenetrable

severe and black as coal
glittering and dazzling
like an age-hardened diamond


her mouth is a thin line
she is quiet as a mouse
she never talks
her lips trembling feebly
like a leaf in the autumn wind

her soul is black as night
a bulletproof vest
for all her weaknesses
her soul exudes an air of indifference
to everything


her fingertips are fragile 
her nose pink and raw
only smelling the scent
of pure fear
radiating off of herself

her instincts are a feral wolf
snarling
eyes darting
teeth bared
ready to attack


she is delicate

she is bulletproof

she is light as a feather

yet strong as an ox
idk, i just wanted to explore how someone's outside and inside could be like opposites and still feel realistic (enough.)
idk if i kept the realism,,, i'm not quite sure how i feel about this piece...

    Ooh I like this! I love how you put the strong sides of her in bold and the lighter sides in the standard font.

    This is really cool. I really like the idea you had here. I feel like this all the time like the person I come across as is not the person I am in my head.
