i am not a good person.
i was molded out of paradoxes,
bravery or self-preservation,
pounding heart against blank mind,
me or you me or you me or you.

i am both the person standing in front to take the blow
and the person cowering behind, trying to dodge.
the world splits into two in my mind.
they say a prism can turn light into a rainbow
but all i see is grayscale--

(the number you have tried to call does not exist)

i feel most at home when there are streaks of acrylics up my arms
when i am trying to paint the world red
because it's better than gray. anything is
here, we are in limbo
and change is a rule that has not been invented
so physics molds to the time and space of a scared little girl
who really isn't so scared after all--

(the number you have tried to message has been disconnected)

my skin stays clear as the rest of me burns
the inside is what matters, not the outside,
and i am a glossy fruit with rotting flesh
or maybe there's nothing beneath my skin at all.
you peel and peel and all you'll find is
a few bad memories.

(you are out of credit. please recharge to make a call)

never have i ever:
kissed a girl.
looked in the mirror and smiled.
gone to a concert.
writiten such a stupid poem.

you see,
i am not a good person.
