I screamed,

"There is nothing
wrong with me, not a damn
thing.”


I wanted to believe
the big dipper on my arm
meant something more
than sun marks & kisses.

But, how can I trust words
that slip through my teeth
as easy as breathing
when this star
has only ever learned
how to     f
                a
                   l
                l
                    ?
much like my writing.
I'm dizzy.

Love how it starts with screaming and ends with falling - making a constellation sandwich.

This is great. It captures... Everything. The invincibility of youth being shattered. Fantastic job.

:love: This is gorgeous, my dear.

I haven't ever seen a constellation on my body, just stars in my eyes from time to time. :)
