The Guide for the Gifted and Fearless

I’m Glowing Again

glowing like the hue

of my

“Summer Sun”

nail polish,

i prepare for another day with

enchantments and hair-spiration.

sometimes i’m realistic,

sometimes i escape the innumerable sets of

metaphorical weight-lifting

with dreams of glamour

in a location-less utopia.

my body feels heavy.

my heart beats slow.

my breath got lost

along the way.
