  You could have a big dipper   

Retina by Tiffany Shaw-Diaz

come closer

i heard while sitting in my room

i just wanted to see you

the moon shyly said

~ (0) ~

my body is not beautiful

i admitted

it is covered with scars and dents

so is mine! and yet you humans

she laughed

worship every inch of my skin
