don’t grow up it’s a trap

I know that I am stardust and the universe composite but I don’t want to be your everything. everything is such a vastness like an ocean without a bottom or a sky without a top and you don’t get to put your name on it just because you’re lost in it. become un-lost in me. I am not your belonging, I am not your earth mother, I am not your heart or the black eye that I gave you when you took me as your lover and I am not your everything.

it took me months and years and lifetimes to learn that this pedestal is a mockery: I am not gold or goddess

just girl. I green.
