There’s Something About

I wrote this poem on a whim after finding inspiration from a picture of myself at a younger age…

There’s something about being innocent and pre heartbreak.

There’s something about hair that’s virgin to bad haircuts.

There’s something about lips that have never been kissed.

There’s something about putting on too much lipgloss because it was the only form of “makeup” you felt compelled to wear.

There’s something about the brightness within eyes that are virgin to iPhone and iMac desktop screens.

There’s something about having jet black hair virgin to hair experiments.

There’s something about having pre pimple, flawless skin.

There’s something about taking a perfectly executed selfie before it was labeled such a thing via a bulky Kodak camera.

There’s something about not knowing that capturing a moment would be so very vital to your future self.

There’s something about thinking that you’re ugly when the boys at school just needed glasses.

There’s something about not knowing just how strikingly beautiful you are simply because you don’t have a boyfriend.

There’s something about being 15.

P.S. Oh, “How I wish I could be where I was when I wanted to be where I am now.”
