Girls

There are some girls
that wake up with sunlight
escaping the ends of their hair,
they walk on clouds born of fire
streaming out from their fingertips.

They are magic.

But some girls –
some girls wake up when
they’d rather not wake up at all.

These girls enjoy long walks ‘till
dark to avoid the road back home,
they stay up nights drawing visions
of the sky – marking moons they
plan to visit and mapping stars
they’d like to find.

When they walk, they feel like running,
they want to float, they want to fly,

they know their minds are free to wander
even if they don’t make it to the skies.

Hi, I’m Emily and I like to think of myself as a kaleidoscope, but one that ranges from a spectrum of commitment issues to emotional hoarding, all circling around varying shades of anxiety. People say I have trouble ‘staying present’ and I’ve found that daydreaming becomes significantly less acceptable in your 20’s.
