honey-brown skin glistens like liquid gold and pours into my open mouth. i drink up as if i've been parched for years. but this flavor could never compare
pink cheeks rosy like blooms that burst when you compliment me. you say my name and everything else falls like petals, sinking down down down.
your golden-brown skin is warm and inviting. on the outside i stay cool and collected -- freezing my feelings so i'll never crack. but on the inside,

The pestilent air around me breathed.
I hate not knowing how you feel when you see me Is it love that makes your lips turn up Or pure curiosity? I hate not knowing what my words mean to you Are they like daggers with a poison tip
