slay me now

the more stubborn they are
the better stories they tell
a thousand mornings of frustration
unravelling is undoing
let them be
volumes of stories
body and soul
characters and spine
pages entwined
rhythm and rhyme
so don’t straighten them
I much prefer the non fiction kind

seriously my #cryptonite

if a guy tells you he likes your hair curly,
your face without makeup,
dressed normally, not scantily,
what on earth could possess you,
to think that we’d believe you,
when you say,
you only dress up, make up, straighten and do
for yourself.

if he’s raw, he’ll love you raw
if he’s fake,
there won’t be enough add ons,
and adornments you can satiate him with
