If you were a real superhero what would you fight for?
I was going to get mad at everyone in my art class for wasting expensive paint but then I got distracted by how pretty it was
i cant belieev im laughing so much
I am thinking of how a bug’s whole world can be crushed
with the weight of our thumb’s fingerprint
and how I used to believe that your palms
cupped together were strong enough
to scoop me away from a lake inhabited by water spiders
but now I am wondering why I was so afraid.
It is unfair how we accuse the bees for a wasp’s temper
so I have tried to separate you from the rest
but I still flinch at the buzz in your voice when
you attempt to convince me that you have never landed on another flower.
I tried to starve the mosquitos
by flooding repellant on my skin until my flesh
mourned the toxins into my bloodstream
and you would always laugh,
said your cologne starves those fuckers just the same.
I wanted to make myself dainty for you;
tried to spin myself into something symmetrical and beautiful
but through the weaving process I found myself caught in my own web.
You pressed your thumbs on my cheekbones
as we finally said good-bye
and I am wondering now if my world is any bigger than a bug’s.
I no longer wish to wake up in a bed where the sun
spilling through the blinds detours around my body
and takes a crash course on the landscapes
of the regions on your skin
but I want to ask her what it’s like to fall asleep
buried under your body
that is doused in the fumes of your new cologne.
I really hate being an introvert because I sometimes think “oh hey, I can totally hang out with a bunch of people right now! I can handle it! I hate being alone!!” and then three hours into hanging out I realize how draining of energy it is for me to be around other people and I just want to curl up into a ball and isolate myself for the rest of my life.
OMG I FORGOT TO FEED MY NEOPET
These are my favorite parents in any movie ever.
