what kind of honest are you looking for?A Poem by freelancejouster
were i to ever stop and pause
(and the goosebumps come already,
coating my bare legs,
tracing the outline of my finally tanned shoulders
a poor reaction
to internal cold)
i think that i should want to make a change.
a change the way i regard and portray those around me,
a change in the way-
(and my hands start to shake,
chipped purple - it's always purple - nail polish,
fidgeted and ticked onto
a grimy, old black keyboard,
borrowed from an old relative
and i'm not saying that i wear rose-colored glasses
(in fact, i admit,
likely, quite the opposite,
if i had to color them,
they'd likely be something like s**t-colored
or that clammy green one turns before vomiting)
but perhaps i'm not particularly honest?
and who's to blame,
i mean really,
the mess or the "parents" who taught her to behave that way?
