  1. you will grow stronger than sequoias and in time, you will touch the sky this whole earth is a blank page and your fingers are bleeding colored ink the waves of the sea cannot compare to your eyes oracle beauty universes wait to be unravelled, secrets yearning to be found sadness sinking in like fog over fields, but soon, the sun will shine through laughter, golden smiles even on sad days, you are truly ametrine you will find your way although wolves howl at night, you are safe here with us. ~~~~~ author's note: to selah, kalani, emma, alejandro, jocelyn, oliver, and emmelia. these could be read individually or as a single poem? i think i'm going to rewrite this with different line breaks because it seems a bit weird like this.
  2. lydia, pt. 1

    i think of rich mulberry hues whenever i hear your name the kind of purple that can't be synthetic your namesake was a saint and your birth month the amethyst heart of winter i always said i wanted your eyes, terra cotta flecked copper (unlike mine- oxidized) and your freckles stippled on with the lightest touch

  5. i. i’m standing naked in front of the sink examining myself like a cadaver i can’t decide whether i like what i see because i don’t believe the mirror or my friends when they tell me i’m pretty maybe i’m unphotogenic or conditioned into hating myself who knows ii. my skin and the room are turned vanilla by curtains that dim sunlight and block the outside and i haven’t shaved in weeks because it’s so cold so so cold goosebumps dot my arms and dark hair grows in all the places it shouldn’t i’m iii. envious of blondes and a lot of people really iv. i’m sorry v. there are three scars on my leg from my neighbor’s dog where the skin is not real skin but stretched and red and indented another on my right hand from a plastic chair (long story) a fifth on my ankle from twisted metal and a sixth on my arm from me vi. sometimes i wish we were all blind and always i wish i saw more girls with smiles on billboards and mall store signs vii. i smile often but do i deserve to? viii. i’ve gotten so bony to the point where i can stack quarters on my collarbones and you can see my sternum in the right light but is that good or bad? am i beautiful or not? ix. i can never decide

  8. Dreams

    had a dream that hitler came to my school, and gave my class a worksheet to do for some reason. i had so much other work to do that i forgot to do it until the day of, it was the most stressful dream ever because i thought i was going to get beaten if i didn't do it, so i spent most of the dream sitting on a playground slide with 4 other random girls i didn't know cramming to get it done.
  9. euphor

    walking like i'm tipsy even though it's three thirty and i'm wearing no shoes and i've had maybe three sips of wine in my life the hallway lights reflect in the floor tile and in your eyes it's too bright and i want to be alone with you and smiling's my thing i'll have crow's feet before i'm twenty and you said something about my laugh but never finished your sentence because i caught your eye in a drunken daze feeling like gravity was something i'd only dreamed about

    if you want context for any of these tell me "if eggos were real i'd eat them all the time" "you can't spell hayden without aids" "code name beef...can you imagine just having a girl's number saved into your phone as beef?" "i know you're talking about me!" "is this the video where the guy makes out with a statue?" "NO DABBING AT THE TABLE!" everyone proceeds to dab "I LOVE TYLER AND FRICKING PTERODACTYLS" "don't drink paint water, you might die" "that's kind of the point" "how can you not think my snape hair looks sexy"

  12. ivoire

    travertine membrane stretches over protruding wrist bones, red knuckled dried ivory foundation and eczematic winter tendencies outside, this skin is parchment paper but against cold porcelain a darker hue dad's mediterranean runs through my veins but only shows up in my sister

  19. driveway olympics

    parabolic asphalt skid marked and cracked open lead to salt-less driveways left for kids with old hockey sticks gravel to skin when our feet slip, sold saline to our past selves through bloodstained mittens with the chill in our quaking shoulder and stinging nerve endings simultaneously numb and frozen solid

  21. van gogh nights

    the heavens seem closer than they usually do- peridot and indigo hued, the soft rustling of bottle green leaves made kinetic by lazy shadow-slinking creatures eyes so wide and gold-strung binary-star blinding, piercing heavy lidded irises poking through night's sleepy breath they crawl up with short brushstrokes over ultramarine hills the colors of the sky painted in their hearts
