I fell in love with words
long before I kissed a boy
or girl -
I watched the world
through virtual glasses,
zooming in on syllables
wherever I went,
lapping up knowledge
with the fresh first
only children have.

The first time I wrote my name
I wasn't satisfied with it,
and had to writewritewrite
to make that first bout
of crooked scribbles
alright -

a whole world
had opened itself to me
with pencil on paper.

It's true;
the first poem
I ever wrote
was my name.
first love

I try
to keep my heart closer
to my chest these days -

it's not working very well.

That's what I say!
Hearts belong in a chest!

But instead,
my heart beats
like the wings of a summerbird,
too-quick, too-strong, and it simply
jumps out of my chest to collect
another dent on the street.

My heart --

it doesn't suit me anymore.

(It hurts, clearly it's now
out-of-date, ancient system,
I need a complete reboot.)

The silly organ
keeps wanting to run after
old stories, and I'm too scared
to follow, so you see -

we've grown apart,
my heart and I.

Could I please
have a new one?
Wanted: Heart Transplant
I don’t know if I use my head the right way,
but then again who’s to say that I’m wrong?
I’m sick of this longing but I feel too dull when it’s gone.
My face cracks
under the sun
like your heart
in my hands.

Oh (my) darling,
I need you
to love me -
I'm not sure
you should,
why you would.
Of course I get the sunburn right in my face after one week of sunny weather. In March. The itchiness is killing me and makes me want to claw the skin off of my skull.

:sun: : IN YO FACE
I'm a little worried
( frightened
I didn't want to say)

what will happen
when I write about you
snap all my pencils so I can hide
IT'S BEEN FOREVER. Ahem. Have this.

(Max Frisch said "I never described myself, I only ever betrayed myself" - or in the original, "Ich habe mich selbst nie beschrieben. Ich habe mich nur verraten." I think that's beautiful, and I relate these days.)

So, hi. I'm a girl. I like using fancy words. And Oscar Wilde.

Rule no. 1: Give a llama - get a llama! :iconllamacopterplz:
Because llamas are awesome.

my wonderful cheshire-icon was made by Herzlose

I appreciate all favs and comments, even though I do not always thank for them. So instead, have a collective thank you here:
