the following are words i like for different reasons, mostly because they sound beautiful and make me think beautiful (if beautifully sad) thoughts…

wounded sounds so passive, victimized, and graceful

please don’t you dare

try to fall in love with me

And every word spoken

Sown in your raging hair
Blown to your face so fair

Before I breathed just what I needed
