Poem: When You Look At Me.

I want to

Stand tall,

Straighten my back,

And be more measured

With my words,

When you look at me.

_____________________

I want to end

World wars,

And put out fires

With my bare hands…

_____________________

I want to conjure up

A flat stomach,

And flutter my eyelashes

Awkwardly

When you look at me.

_____________________

In your eyes,

I am the stars,

Twinkling,

Shining,

_____________________

A celestial cluster

Of diamonds

Hovering above the earth.
