-If you call me ugly, I will try to look nice for
you call me pretty,
I will try even harder to look nicer for you.
-If I see you smirking when you're sad, I'll wonder if
your father used to
drink and drive with you in the backseat.
-If I see you tapping both of your feet during the entire unit of
eating disorders in our health class, I will wonder if
you're trying to burn more calories.
-If you say something funny while leaving third block, I'll
hold onto the stupid grin you gave me until someone takes it
-If I see a flower between sidewalk cracks, I'll whisper wind
between its pedals because I'm a wilting wallflower and I
just need someone to understand.
- If I see jagged cuts between the layered bracelets you always
wear, I will be especially sweet to you, and when it's just
you and me at the end of the day because we both take forever to
pack our bags, I will let my sleeve drift up my arm to show you
you are not alone.
