What I Pine For Rewrite:
I sit in the back of Lisas Car, my legs tucked under my chin away from the prying eyes of the neighbourhood children. Im Maggie Simpson, Aged ten, a Reserved Girl who doesnt mix very well, Lost in a world of fate.
The Children at school act like I dont exist, Like a soulful speck of dust floating forever in a vacant landscape, Even the teachers treat me with care, I have to have special lessons so everyone thinks Im thick which I the case I guess.
Im not like other Children
Maybe it would have been better if I had died that day I fell from the top of the Climbing Frame. Be free of this pain and exclusion. Thats how I got this horrid illness. I had been climbing then suddenly like a hand had pushed me I was thrown back and landed with a smack on the hard concrete. I had passed out.
I remember the rest clearly even it had happened so long ago, when I had come round I had found myself trapped. Unable to hear From that day forward inste
Red Riding HoodI want to believe people so badly when they say they won’t bite
that I contemplate climbing into their smiling jaws
thinking that it might be better to be split in two than left hanging.
But always, I draw my red hood and flit back into the forest
running in the shadows of pathways, never stepping into clearings
because I’ve spent my whole life in the wilderness
and I still can’t tell the wolves from the woodsmen.
You Were Not An Aquarium BoySea-glass became your bones,
brine your blood, and seashells
melded into your skin.
You were not quite an ocean
when you said "This is your sign to love me."
My body was like a building;
tall, cold, almost unbreakable.
I was metallic and sharp,
towering over your waters.
I remember taking your hand in mine,
conch and coral shells scrubbing
my skyscraper wrists, and laughing
about how one day you would
submerge every last bit of me.
Your lips, riddled with argonauts,
found my cheek and I cringed
at the coarseness.
You asked if they bothered me
and I finally told you "I
think I love you."
