Mind open. Eyes squinting. Heart nervous.
Possibilities flow through veins like morphine.
Burning when it meets memories past.
Soothing pains from the healing process.
Intoxicating mixed with desires not quenched.
Playing Mario Kart with my emotions.
Exfoliate the pain. Shave off depression.
Flat iron fear. Trim back shyness.
Moisturize with happiness. Brush in confidence.
Beat my face with unconditional love.
I think I missed a spot.
Speak your mind lest it explode
You must understand your heart sounds
Help cries through cinched vocal cords
Brain freezes when arteries are iced
Feed your soul to avoid destruction
Your death will be painfully slow
Herpes, the guest that won’t leave
Taking shots of penicillin like tequila
Your babies suffer from your pride
Because you weren’t a grown woman
Cleaned off a space for you.
Anticipating your arrival into my life.
Mind, body, and soul anxiously await.
Patient heart knows you are near.
Friends to Dream Lover to Soulmate.
