By Taylor Sykes
my birthstone didn't mean much at the start of things
when it was just the jewel on a plush white bear
or the glitter in my ring necklace earrings because of January just a
stone just a rock just a symbol of an idea of who I am and it's
bloody I said like the death of an unborn child or empty
eye sockets which once scared me but now means
more means life full of paper cuts roadkill and the organ donor
heart means the color that looks best on me the shade of
my moods the sheen of my hair in the sun
my best compliment my signature statement
and really just explains everything and nothing
because I am sometimes vibrant but I'll admit mostly that strange dark
