Discontinued

The old me

is no longer on the shelves

because let’s be honest,

she never existed.

This is me now

and this is me then;

foolhardy and faerie,

clumsy and pretty

angry at the world

and everyone in it,

loved and unloved

but always in love.

I will bloom and I will wilt

alongside the seasons;

again and again

and again.
