Random Poem:


When I started walking through walls
I thought I would shatter. From a
flow of solid glass I would become
a thousand sharp flowers.
But I would only lose
one acrylic nail or my hair
would be a shade darker, lipstick
a shade lighter.
When I started walking through walls
I thought I was special and the bruise
on my forehead was worth it. A kiss
lies there and blooms invisible.
