Behind the Smile

The judgement free girl

318 notes

Show me the riverbed of your thirst.
Show me slight part of lips. Show me
skin flush, impatience & your need
to extinguish distance. Show me
the bird’s nest in your chest.
Show me your hurried & quiet
one-word responses. Show me
cold fingers, self-blame & the desire
to keep your hands busy. Show me
the flowerbed blooming vivid
on the top of your head.
Show me the unbuckling
of your smile. Show me
adrenaline spike, blood rush
& palms pressed to cheeks.
Show me the highway
stretching along the cityscape
of your rage. Show me
your bared teeth & violent
reveries. Show me sudden
explosions, tunnel vision
& the guilt piled at your feet.
Show me the yellow brick road
to your contentment. Show me
the depth of your laugh lines.
Show me upright spine,
breakneck shoot the breeze ease,
& your whistle-hum. Show me
the concert hall of your booming
laugh track. Show me the spotlight
shine of your inner light without scorn.
Show me relaxed shoulders, no sweat
breaths & your best bashful brag.
Show me your naked, your raw,
your stripped to the core tenacity
& I swear I’ll show you mine.

Hey, adults of the world

How about instead of making kids terrified to ever fuck up

You teach them how to cope with the aftermath of fucking up and fix it as best they can

That way they’re not so overwhelmed with anxiety every time there’s even so much as a chance of making mistakes that they never try anything and dread making decisions because of it
