Poem of the Week – “A Reminder to Myself”

“A Reminder to Myself”

You are a fire of a girl
with a mind of gold
and a heart that was sold
when your insides
turned to ash.
You don’t feel like home —
you are three am rooftops
and cracked sidewalks
beneath bare feet.
You are black smoke
and tired eyes from
too many nights spent
filling your lungs
with the ocean in your chest
and calling it self-defense.
