i am asked about my favorite color.
i am seven
and my reply is
pink
because i am a girl
and pink
is a princess color.
i am asked about my favorite color.
i am ten
and i like
green
because a boy told me that pink
is lame and girly.
i am asked about my favorite color.
i am thirteen
and i tell them
purple
it is unique and spunky
like i want to be.
i am asked about my favorite color.
i am seventeen
and i just say
red
i do not say
it is bright and angry at the world
as i am
i cannot form the words to express
all of my frustrations
so i paint my lips with
rage.
i am asked about my favorite color.
i am twenty
and it’s pink
i remember the joy
of being a child
i reclaim the freedom
of femininity
because i cannot remember
what my shoulders felt like
before the depression
hung from them.
i am asked about my favorite color.
i am twenty-six
and my answer is
brown
it confuses most people
they don’t see it
they may think of dirt
and dust
and dead things
but it is coffee with friends
and the chocolate chip cookies
my mom used to make.
it is my hair
and my eyes
amber and gold
in the sun
and i love myself
again

i want to grow old with someone in the way that we'll dance in the kitchen together even though our bones will hurt from it later and in the way that we'll know each other's favorite scents and in the way that we'll miss when we were young but we'll know that we have a part of that still in each other

I don't go to your grave. They ask me to, and I say no, because you aren't there. You don't exist anymore, and no matter how much I weep or yell or fight, you aren't coming back. You'll never come back, and I don't know how to make peace with that.

I know
you think you‘re complicated
but
did you ever saw great things being easy?
I choose your chaos
over every tidiness I can get.
I choose storms and rain
over a sweet summerbreeze,
lightning and thunder
over sun
and
I choose you
in a million lifes
all over again.

They're all screaming, and grabbing at you. And they all matter, but it's never going to be enough. You will never have enough hands, enough heart, enough of you.

when i say i love you endlessly:
i love everything about you from top to bottom. i will love you no matter your struggles, and i will love you regardless of your flaws. hell, i will love your flaws too. i will love every part of you until i reach the end of the earth.
