A Letter To Little Me
Dear Little Me,
Today I read a letter you wrote to me so I thought I'd return the favor. I know that you can't wait to grow up. That you think that everything will get better as you age and that nothing can stop you.
That's only mostly correct. At the age of five, you've been through so much little girl. I know you're really scared of everything. Afraid to cry. Afraid to trust. Afraid to share how hurt you are. You fool everyone so well but believe me when I say this: You don't want to be that person. Open up. Share. Cry. Be happy.
So much weight is on your shoulders at such a young age and it's not fair. It makes you strong though. Keep pushing on but don't force yourself to do it alone.
It seems like you don't have any friends. That you're all too easily forgotten during school. It sucks but karma's got you and when you go to college you meet the most amazing group of people in the entire world. Not to mention your friends from Art Camp 2009.
No matter what your father says, yo
pray into my collarbone
let your snake tongue slither
with the syllables.
i wish for soft-chested nights,
and the trickle of champagne down crystal glass.
poppy-lips, lull me to sleep,
nurse my coiling tongue with yours;
tap my scalp like a silent drum,
and wind my hair in between your fingers
like broken guitar strings.
(serenade me with the buzz of pollen in your kiss.)
a hospital bird with soot in her lungsshe slept through a car crash
that almost killed her,
through whitewhite walls
where her lover dies
nobody thought she'd make it
but she woke up a few months later
with flowers in her hair
and ash in her airway
trying to remember how to start all over
but forgetting to remember how to live.
fall slipped from her open eyes
and winter crawled in for a long hibernation
to her the clouds looked sick
and pale like they might
let everything inside them out,
but she opened up wide instead,
spilling blood where there was none to be spilled.
her heart slipped down the street
and with unsteady hands
she stitched in a bird and cut off its wings.
Keep in Touch!
