SEZALPREET KAUR - POEMS
When they made you,
They did it so gently
So very carefully and delicately
Like they didn't make you
They carved you out of water.
And...and they used flowers instead of chisels so that you could be perfect
de toute beauté.
You could've been a God
A real God
With birds and flowers and light around you
Las la belleza.
You could've been a greek sculpture
With oceans in place of those eyes
Oh those eyes
They made them so blue
They carved you so beautifully
That if you weren't a human being
You would've been the sky
I killed a song in my throat
And lost the corpse somewhere among the words i could've spoken but couldn't
My tongue tastes bitter because of the dead song
I am a quarter human and three quarters void
It seems like the song would never be found
It seems like the guilt would never leave m
Over and over again
Until I don't feel my bones breaking with the harsh sound of the word
To no one
Until it echoes in my head
And I vaporize with the air.
