if i were a song,
i know who would sing me.
someone with grit in their throat
and dark distortion
buried beneath the strings of melancholy guitars.
someone who speaks
with an animalistic growl
laced into each careless word
and whose shoulders slump.
someone with chapped lips
because everything they say
is raw and chews away their skin.
someone with dirty fingernails
attached to nimble fingers;
someone with lethargic hands
that can never seem to do anything right.
someone with their eyes on the ground
and their lips frozen into a frown.
