False

false
You're false

like your teeth

like the eye

you lost when you

were five

running with 

a stick

while chasing

your cousin;

That eye,

the one that

remains clear

while the other

is cloudy

with cataracts.


You're false.


On the outside 

you're old

and damaged,

but within

you laugh

like a child.

Is this so wrong?


You're false


like your breasts

like your lips

like your smile;

The smile which

fails to touch your 

eyes.

Are you so rare,

though?

False.

A sparkling 

exterior

lovely to look

upon,

yet

dull and 

lifeless 

within.

No light.

No shine.

'So, tragic

to be so

false.

-Nichelle Lei
