I am tired of touching skin and not feeling it; for I feel minuscule dirt and cells and softness as my fingers press against your flesh, but no - the shivers do not reach my heart. and I am tired of looking into your eyes and counting the strands, seeing blue but not seeing the ocean; loving the brightness but not loving the sadness as well. I am no stranger, but you don't know me at all.
It is about time for the butterflies to start fluttering about, pushing against the insides of my stomach and expanding it so much that I think it will surely explode - but no, I won't have that; for I am a strong person. and weakness is means for pain.
and though I cannot see myself when I am outside with you, I imagine I look my best in the moonlight. Because the milky glow that makes the sky friendlier also makes my face friendlier, my skin softer, and it lights up my eyes as if I were in love.
the tiny cells inside my blood are armed with butterfly nets and all the wrong types of drink.
