I am so sick of
being told to be
all soft edges
and satin skin
stained lips
and porcelain
I don’t want to only feel
beautiful when I am
a raw, untouched blossom
that’s never been plucked
I want to be razorblades
and tongue rings
I want my scars to show
you where I’ve been
and my outsides
to match who I feel
like within

I want to be so high I question my existence.
I want music so loud that my heart hears it.
I want to paint until my back and mind are sore.


All lost in a book.  Another image that will never make it into the mainstream media.
