Beauthy is a Tyranny 5/5 (2)

Do you badger a butterfly
on the hues of it’s wings
Cat-call a peacock
for it’s sapphire feathers

Why am I bullied
on the curls of my hair
Whistled at
for my sparkling eyes

I am a firefly
in a jar of moths waiting
to extinguish my lights and
be set free of my lavish bonds

I beg for the day
when my hair will gray
my teeth yellow
when my old bones
will groan for rest

Pearl Whiskers 4.25/5 (16)

Ghost barrels through the water
shattering schools of brown and green
Until caught
on a taunting silver tooth
strayed too far

How do you harness
the power of the wind
With an iron girdle
that’s buffeted and blasted
Until and echoing squeak
twists apart the rusting branches
releasing the breeze

My ghost king slips back into the water
Once harnessed wind rushes back to his lungs
Gasping, grouping
waltzes away

Insecurity

Someday I’ll learn to value me for every little thing i do
If you were an artist how would you paint me
You can feel the anger
You can feel the pain
Which these insecurities bring
People say she’s a beauty
But she doesn’t think of herself as that
The frown at her reflection
She throws the mirror down
It shatter to the floor
This wasn’t the same girl anymore
I’m still here, everyday
I’m here, but i’m not really here
In my eyes i see a monster
And it’s tearing you apart
You are better than you think you are
You stronger then you know
You’re beautiful
But in your own way

Cats 4/5 (3)

Cats are perfection
They don’t need much
They don’t need to be walked
They don’t need toys, they will make their own
Cats are a soft love that needs no fuel
They are happy with soft blankets and cuddling
They make their approval know
And they disapproval apparent
Cats can be cold
They will destroy your things
They are independent
But when a cat loves you their love is pure

Sisters 3/5 (1)

This is my sister
she’s something else
can’t explain why she is
i can feel it

Have that bond
with a person you never thought
they will be your sister,
our bond is like a lock that can’t be unlocked

I can’t go to anyone else
she can’t
we never go to another person
ever…..

That’s my sister
always sisters
for life
forever my sister…..

she’s going to be one of my best friends forever
forever…..
We understand each other
We help each other

like sisters
but we will always be
sisters…..

Talking

It felt like we were alone
spending hours talking
like we were the only people alive
like the whole world died

I never knew what to say
it’s always hard to talk
because i was so focused on her
her only…..

The only thing i’m always about
the only person i could talk to every second
every minute
every hour

I wish she could be the only person to talk to
i wouldn’t want to be anywhere else
only talking to her
her only…..

I don’t know why i had nothing to say
but i just smile and smile
i’m so focused on her
her only…..

She can be 1 in a million people in the world
and i will always want to talk to her
her only…..
