another daily prompt! I feel like a lot of my poetry has become typical angsty teen stuff, but what can you do?? I hope you like it 💛

Bite

You're a savage creature.

your words have a bite to them that

leave the people in your wake dazed,

with the taste of lemons on their lips.

you're a broken mirror:

shards that could cut,

that show people a shattered image of themselves

instead of anything relating to you.

speaking of that,

you're a locked chest, or maybe a container

without any lock at all. everything swept inside,

so there's no possibility of spillage.

but inside?

you're a beach rock, or a chipped shell.

worn down by the waves of the world,

sharp edges dulled by time and hardship,

colors faded. smooth and soft and sad.
