Why can’t I stroll through your tall grass?
Feeling the wisps brush against my bug bites?
Why can’t I smell like calla lilies?
My favorite movie used to be your kitchen counter.
My favorite book was your stained carpet.
I wish your tree branches would cradle me and that I wouldn’t get whiplash.
I wish my thoughts of you didn’t remind me of a windstorm.
You never thought shifting through my sand was worth it.
What do you do when you’re calling up, scratching at your skin, in tears?
And instead of desperate prayers- all that comes out is bubbles?
I’m bloating with saltwater-
But it’s not your fault.
I fell into a bed of grass
Thinking I would become a daisy.
It’s ok that I’m closer to a sea anemone than a flower- I just wish I wasn’t laying on the ocean floor.
That’s what I get for jumping into your white caps.
Hi! So recently a friend of mine posted a picture on instagram, of her in a bikini at the beach. I of course commented, as she is gorgeous, and said "MOANA" in all caps. I meant this purely as a compliment to her, because the first thought that popped into my head when I saw her picture was Disney's Moana. Later that day, I found out someone commented directly below me and said " *tropical princess." Did I do something wrong here? I swear I had the purest intentions, but now I am confused. Thx!
