i want to simplify myself

to become an easy, abstract thought

something easy to swallow, and easier to love

im tired of this raging, endless depth within me

of reaching further and further to try and find the constellations

that i’ve been promised i hold inside

instead of blood and bones and marrow and stomach bile

i feel i could be an ocean

but there is no beauty in the monsters beneath my surface

i want to love myself but i don’t remember what that feels like

to believe that my body is a temple

instead of a crime scene
