Her - Isabella Moya
Maybe her long blonde hair will cascade
Down her shoulders, reaching her back.
Maybe the sodalite that’s engraved
Into her eye sockets will start to crack.
Maybe that long blonde hair will catch fire
And the flames will reach the roots.
I would only be a liar,
If I said I don’t imagine the smoke
That would fill the room.
Maybe she’ll smile and the pearls.
That line her gums will plop,
One by one, down a steep drain.
Maybe the confidence that oozes
Out of her pores
Will leave and never return.
Maybe her long legs that hold her up
Will crumble beneath her.
Maybe when she tries to gather the pieces
They’ll disintegrate between her fingers.
But that will never happen.
She will flip her locks of marigold
And stare into my dark eyes.
Never realizing the fate
I created in my mind.
The fate that was made especially for her.
