Candied Thoughts

Candied thoughts under candied skies,
Stop lying to yourself.
You look into the mirror
And console yourself by saying
I’m smart,  I’m funny,  I’m kind,
I can do anything I put my mind to.
Oh honey, but you don’t know,
Pretty girls always finish first.

Appreciate Yourself

You don’t have to be soft and fragile and sweet, you can be hard and edgy and bitter. I know your eye lashes aren’t long enough and your eyes don’t exactly hhsparkle. Your skin flakes and your lips get chapped; you’re all kinds of flaws bundled into a package. You laugh loud and sit awkwardly and put flowers in your hair to make yourself feel pretty. You ask yourself questions you can’t answer, you lie to yourself too. You break hearts including your own again and again. You cry ugly then wipe your own tears.
So what if your eyes don’t hold stars and your smile is kinda wonky? So what if you don’t talk a lot and have a few friends? So what if you’re a hopeless romantic and he doesn’t want you? You’re bitten nails and messy hair and an unhealthy addiction to chocolate. There’s no other way to be you. You’re fucking art, and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise.

You realize

how rarely

people actually

look at you

when your arms

are covered

with scars

in too short sleeves

and no one seems

to notice.

it is not that you like it
or that you enjoy it;

it is knowing
that it destroys you
that makes you want
to keep doing it
again and again.

She was the type of girl
who lived on the conviction
that a guy could never ruin anything for her.
But with one look at his freckle-speckled face
and nonchalant sideways glance
she knew that this would be the guy
who could possibly ruin everything for her.

I just wanted you so much
all at once,
I began to lose footing.
The gravity holding me down
was suddenly nonexistent,
I seemed to be floating,
yet also falling.
And it only seemed like a matter of time
before I finally hit the ground again;
and I prayed it’d be a
gentle landing.

Fishing for You

There’re plenty of fish in the sea they say,
but they don’t know,
you’re the only fish I want.
