(Public health) nerd. (Aspiring) creative. Generally conflicted.
I grew my hair long to spite my face.
That’s what you wanted, wasn’t it?
Reins, woven lustrous thick,
To pull me back
When I strayed too far
Or bucked too hard.
On the other end of the line, my boyfriend’s voice admonishes me to go back home.
You told me you loved my small breasts
My mosquito bites
Perky peaks rising defiantly from pale pink
The way they fit the curve of your palm
And rose at the electric flick of your tongue
