year.

it’s been a year since i cut my hair

down to ragged ends that stretched longingly towards my shoulder blades

it’s been a year since i broke

and skipped meals for the sake of a loose waist band

it’s been a year since i’ve seen a familiar face

peeking out behind the curls in my hair

as i stare longingly in the mirror

wanting to feel something

it’s been a year since i’ve worn my favorite coconut lip balm

and sucked on my breath while wearing a shirt

it’s been a year since i caressed the pages of my favorite novel

since i’ve been too busy writing my own

~ it’s been a year since i transformed
