I use my favorite purple pen to

write in the creases made where my fingers

are held straight and doodle music notes and

hearts on my kneecaps and song lyrics on

the tops of my feet so that there

are glimpses and snippets of who I am

the inside. so that when i move one part of me

or another, people can see who I am on my exterior as

well as the interior. I am purple hued

(hence the purple pen)

but it gets muddled and stained dark on its way to

the surface and ends up looking either black or an ugly

muddy brown depending on what light you view it in....


am I the only one who can feel that

purple waiting to go from nondescript into

a very own hue of its own?
