Dedication, part I.

To the girl whose words made me fall.

I fell in love with your words.
So this one is for you.

Not So Easy

Everyone thinks I’m so open,
so vulnerable and easy to comprehend.

Black and white,
all spelled out in pretty prose.

But then they peel back another layer
reveal something new
and uncover a new puzzle,
desperate to be unwound.

It’s not as easy
as they make it seem.
