The words kind of just spilled out of my mind... I would absolutely love help changing my writer's puke into something beautiful (sorry for the disgusting metaphor)


September 24, 2020


externally, she is nothing

not a single expression-
a hint of a smile, a furrow of brows, a single tear
this is her armor
the way she protects herself
emotion is vulnerability
and she's already tearing at the seams
words betray you
even the tiniest whisper
can cause the end of the world
she has forgotten
how to live
and it disgusts her

internally, a different story

seeds were sown
and blossomed into
flowers and weeds
a secret garden
within her walls
she is allowed
to dream
there are colors
inside rainbows
of refracted
light and
she weaves them
into songs
melodies that pour
out sweetly
sung by the voices
inside her head
there is doubt
and fear
and pain
but here she is fearless
they cower in
her gaze
she knows
that this is who
she's meant
to be

so then why does she hide?
