A Poem by Taylor

scars from trips and falls 

experiments with gravity 
puffy cheeks, tired eyes 
curious eyes 
inspired eyes 

a face that changes like the shore 
emotions that ripple over it, erasing the last 

a scarred lip that cages words 

the left arm with a heart 

the pulse that slivers out of the fingertips 

something downtrodden, but hopeful like a phoenix 
something insecure, questioning 
something sensitive, affected by the landing of a fly 
something sparking, wanting cataclysmic change 

the soul of 
nostalgic sunshine 
hope 
freedom 
grievance for the grieving 

so many wishes 
to be beautiful, to be an artist, to be a writer 
to be loved by everyone 

to be loved 
not to be left 
to love 

to love 
to help 
to want 
to change
