The lonely girl sits with her friend
feet in the air, noodles in bed.
Sticking their bellies out proud
in the forever moments of innocence
until it’s gone.
The lonely girl feels like watercolors
splashed with ephemeral seashores.
Her brushstrokes untie her rib cage
for her heart to crash onto the canvas.
But these tides hide under the silence
of her box spring after her mother
tells her to stop being so sad.
The lonely girl dresses up
Stands as tall and elegant as a woman.
She twirls in dresses and dances in high heels
exchanging looks with a pretend boy.
Her stuffed dog holds onto her grip tightly
as she titters at the promise
boys will be reluctant to keep.
The lonely girl lies on her bedroom floor
like a glass of spilled milk.
Tenderly holding her arms to grieve
broken promises and dried up oceans
she lost to the people she pleased.
