Day 588:

you left the first one you loved for something beautiful
held her like the men held their loves on TV
you remember the way her lips
te beautiful one
not the love
melted into yours like warm milk
how it was uncomfortable
and not right
but it was then
and then is all you had
all it wasnt enough
but it was something
something that couldn't bite back at you
something that wouldn't terrify you
because beauty
only has power of persuasion
but love
love can
send earthquakes to the parts of your bones you convinced yourself never existed
to the holes you cut into skin in adolescences
love can do that
make you feel empty and worthless
and ugly
beauty cannot do that
beauty has no power
nothing that cannot be forgotten
by morning
