count the rings around
my narrowed bones;
hold my calloused heart
with fingers bloodied with
the life of the innocent.

paint my name on a white
wooden cross and stake it
in the driest of deserts;
slip my bloated body into
the unforgiving waters of
the pacific so i can rest in
salted sadness deeper
than my own.

the scientists and god theorists
will find me (fossilized)
and still see the scars,
for i have been cut down
to the marrow.

and even in death,
i am a statistic.
the west is beautiful. i am not.

There is more to beauty than looks.
It is for your mind and your words that I love you.
Nothing less. :glomp: Believe me when I say,
you have a truly enchanting mind.

You deserve it. Sometimes a little kindness
can go a long way to undo a lot of wrongs.
