What if I kiss all the spots you taught yourself to hate?
What if I placed my hands on them and left them still,
long enough for my heat to join yours
and you to forget there was ever air between our skin?
What if I love all you loathe and what if I spend my days
dirtying up your brain that was washed?
Show you new pictures of the same you
you started avoiding in the mirror?
What if I say all they say is wrong
and fill your ears with honest words
in a language you stopped practicing?
What if I plant new flowers
in the places you frown at,
and teach you the names of them as they bloom?
What if I told you to never cut them
and let the petals
decorate the floor
as you twirl through your life?
What if you forget you were ever
anything other than beautiful ~ Tyler Knott Gregson ~
