the first time i saw her i thought “she is a field of flowers”

beautiful

the first time i saw her i thought

“she is a field of flowers”

the light shines upon her bringing out her colors

and a breeze blows caressing her petals

she is beautiful

everytime i see her the anvil resting on my shoulders disappears

she replaces the maggots that have always lived inside me with butterflies

they fly through me and hold up my smile until my cheeks hurt

the streetlights lengthen the shadows in her eyes and she tells me she is a leaf on the tree

“im so ready to die and the world only cares that im beautiful”

i wipe away her tears hyper aware of how her cheeks seem to glitter like stars

and her words follow me home as a brand carved into my ribs so i feel them in every inhale

i know i have betrayed her

because instead of saying

“hi how are you”

i said

“hello beautiful”
