I'm sorry. NOT.I'm sorry that I'm not you.
I'm sorry that I'm not skinny.
And that I'm not cut out for a model.
I'm sorry that I don't have a fake tan.
And that I prefer to keep my skin natural.
I'm sorry that my hair is red.
And not a fake bleach blonde like yours.
I'm sorry that I don't wear clothes that reveal too much.
And that I prefer to wear band t shirts and jeans.
I'm sorry that I don't wear those massive hoop earrings.
That I think are uncomfortable.
I'm sorry that I don't listen to the same music as you.
That I don't like the overplayed RnB songs and prefer Heavy Metal.
I'm sorry that I don't act like you.
That I don't go out every Friday night to night clubs and prefer to stay indoors and read, draw or write.
I'm sorry that I'm not as popular as you.
That I don't go around in a big group trying to act cool.
I'm sorry that I'm not as pretty as you.
That I don't cake my face with make up and just wear eyeliner.
So that's all I want to say.
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
