away from a trademarked world

oh take me away 
from this cold 
empty world 
on a ship that's made of hope 
sails of alabaster, guide me away 
from this land of plastic air
​for I wish to be 
a mystic being 
instead of packaged 
and put on a shelf. 

​I shall no longer be pretty and pink
but with a black crown on my head 
​I will steer my ship with confident ease 
with a smirk on my beautiful face. 

and my curves that you taped 
so neatly 
shall guide me along 
the dark sea below 
& a strong tail shall sprout 
from my terrible legs 
giving me olive green strength. 

& my & eyes will blend in 
with the tall chocolate trees
​my barefoot feet will become roots 
and find myself a home. 

my dotted face 
will become the night sky 
freckled, blinking, warm 
​my glasses shall be no more--for I can see galaxies 
​beyond your narrow, preening sight. 
 
not quite finished!

    I really love the descriptions in this! Especially "& my & eyes will blend in
    with the tall chocolate trees" because it was just awww such a beautiful take on brown eyes!
