idk what to write, I’m trying.
write me a peom
compare me to the golden shimmer of the sun
the gentle rush in the stream
call me a tender flower
a flickering flame
a music genre
compare me to the birds tweet
write me a letter
grab me in your arms
show compassions as you might your mother
but please don’t take away this pride I wear
this pendant of disgrace
the only shame I can bear
the only emotions I can feel
the turtling shear of my Brooklyn dress
the SHAME of my womanhood
the confusion in my eyes
the things I have been condemned for
i do not want them far away from me
for they make me feel things.
