A light grew in my chest and slowly
ate away at my cold exterior.
My vampire skin cracked for weeks,
secreting strange liquids
from my broken crevices ..
I dripped them all around town,
all on my friends,
all naked with you in bed
and turned you off.
making new promises to myself.
My feelings walk bare-naked in public,
dancing alone in a crowd
to a sexy techno song.
I hang up my innocent,
good girl hats-
the ones with the polka dots and hearts
and trade them in for outlandish,
badass, purple hair extensions.
Today I’m flying with all my strength,
and free loving nature,
like a precious bird
with diamond encrusted wings
and golden feathers.
