Sweet girl

Long blonde hair,

Pink and purple extensions.

Those things don’t make you beautiful.

You do.

Drinking.

Doing it because it take the pain away

Doesn’t cure it forever.

Even when they’re gone and

You don’t have anybody to lay your head on

You cry but

You still have me.

Asking for the bottle

Mixing it with apple juice

Won’t make it or you

Seem any less wrong.

But it is wrong.

You’re beautiful.

Without the hair extensions,

Mac makeup, and

Designer jeans…

Your personality is a burst of sunshine.

Sunshine.

You seep through on a rainy day;

You light up a dark, cold room and make it shine brighter than the sun.

Sunshine.

The inviting warmth you give the world,

Everything seems to get better when your there.

Sunshine.

The kind that never hides behind

A cloud.

Sweet girl, you are even brighter

When you’re not hidden behind

The concoction of

Whisky,

Coca-Cola,

And Sun Kiss.
