Ginger, blonde, auburn, shiny black
Worthless attempts to tame the untamable
Hair, I’m talking of, you know that mop that sits on your head?
That which splatters itself on your bed?
Value it when you have it, they say.
Cherish it, nourish it, care for it.
Oil it, shampoo it, condition it, mousse it
Straighten it, curl it, colour it till you loose it.
Cut it, comb it, grow it out, tie it up
Let it fall loosely along your shoulder
Because it’s beautiful and shiny, is it not?
Dead cells, nothing else, like the hearts ye possess.
There I said it, I hate it- and not just mine
Frizzy, curly, snake like, impossible
But yours too- clogging my bathrooms and sinks
Giving me a taste everytime it finds itself in my food
Disgusting, you say? Thank you.
Spend another thousand dollar bill
To cherish it, love it, maintain it
Nourish and Value it till it lasts.
Found hair in my mouth after my 10th nap of the day. So here’s angst and hate.
Black, brown, with or without sugar
You pulled all the right triggers
Keeping our sleep at bay
Even on a cold winter day.
Breathe in, breathe out, breathe in
Sit down, I’ve got to tell you something
Now this may break your heart
And turn you cold and bitter
He walked in with a white cup, grande
A green lady in the front, and vanilla icing- Golden, sizzling, cold,
Smelling like heaven and stardust
And called out my friend’s name
A little sip on said friend’s insistence
And I was transported to my happy place
Green hills, alive with the sound of the breeze
‘Twas then that I knew you weren’t my exact match.
An affair that started on a cold winter morning
I was cold, and it was hot
A tiny sip to remind me of sunshine
And little beams of heat
Went on throughout Spring and summer next
Till I found out I was addicted-
Addicted to your cousin, coffee.
It was supposed to be funny.
Was it? Or should I just stop trying?
There’s a cool challenge going on called The #BrunchBookChallenge where you’re supposed to read 30 books this year (2015). I’m taking it, so you can check out my progress, if you want. (And motivate me and suggest me books) Or participate!
