To pulverize a living, beating heart
With words that reek of acid
Formed by such beautiful lips
Before you, love was a little girl
playing dress up and pretend.
The shoes fit me now and the
clothes are my own but
loving you is still like still like
being in a fairy tale.
Jaxia Kiley is a poet and writer from Forth Worth, Texas.
