“Everything loves you”


You’re officially loved
by everything;
the mountains hold your feet
without showing annoyance;
the rain mumbles incomprehensible language,
making you feel the beauty of raindrops
in your skin

Everyday you wake up to a mirror;
reflecting your pimples;
your yesterday’s makeup;
your ruined hair from last night’s parties
and still, it tells you ” you’re beautiful”

Miss, you can’t misbehave
You’re not miserable, you’re just tired
You’re never lonely, you just failed in staying interesting
You don’t need a lawyer or an accountant
Maybe what you need is a milkman or a woodsman;
who will admire the rotten parts of you,
because they’ve witnessed destruction in many forms,
because they see love in you

You’re too white, too downy
You’re a mess;
you make love to lies,
and give birth to many lovers

Haleema A
