dear black-eyed boy,
i'd like to have you
know that i have moved on to
sweeter boys with prettier eyes.


dear black-eyed boy,
his eyes are like honey-chocolate,
which, in my opinion, is way better
than the rabid-dog black of your irises.


dear black-eyed boy,
he has a nickname too, you know.


dear black-eyed boy,
he is beautiful, with
skin like crushed pearls and
a quick, witty mind. do you hurt
him because of what you lack?


dear black-eyed boy,
he is courageous enough to
stand up for a strange girl like me,
while you let your liar's tongue
spill my secrets like the blood i used to
splatter on the ceramic basin of the
bathroom sink.


dear black-eyed boy,
fuck you.
