Lips a shade of red so deep it ***** all the attention in the room to her
Legs that trump the very air she breathes
Hair dangling in a fashionable mess
Jacket hanging on her shoulder in true rebel style, voice crackly and relatable
Eyes a window into her harlequin soul, coloured in glass-like turquoise as enriching as the foam of oceans
And when she smiles at me, she gives off the impression that I've  
made her day by looking at her
But she's made my day just by existing
She's chaos unfurling into beauty
I am but a humble star gazer, and she is as astronomical as a nebula on the verge of becoming a fierce star
Who knows when the cliche metaphors to describe her will end?
A neat lil Beach Boys-e texture there, ey?

im there when you want to
rip out your
hair and scream ,

knees on the floor, your face is
in my hands  .
                          .

there seems to be glass everywhere
you look
and
you're crying ,

you can see it.

i dont know who told you i was dangerous --
but

i can only be so kind .
who has ever thought about how i feel?

when i was little my mom had this vanity that was covered in mirrors and then draped with a cloth, and i have memories of trying to pull the cloth off to see the full thing, and also memories of being on her bed and being able to see myself where there were slits.

Its easy to ***** a smile
even that will go a mile
picking them off of the ground
there will be no reason to frown

Its easy to sit and stare
your judgement will go no where

its easier to love than hate
for most people that's their mistake
its time to open our hearts  
respecting everyone is a start

Entangled in your stare  
my brimstone breathes inferno  
desire digs her sharpened tooth  
slowly marking every ideal curve  

necklines lure seduction  
lighting little fires along my way  
gripping tight at taught inflections  
intentions nibble as you sway  

scorched names scream at heightened senses  
lying ***** upon our souls  
truths arise then settle in  
we're losing but all control  
  
find me in her fluid  
absorbed with a sweet sweet glow  
sanguine complexion of authenticity  
brimming from an all night show
