Mary

I’m in love with a monster.

I’ve sewn her together from the women in my life

She has the wings of angel tattooed on her back and a crooked nose to match her crooked smile

She has a magic belly button

She has a lions heart and a broken wing

She has eyes that sparkle with youth and a dirty mouth

She has the mind of a girl who’s lived before

She has a smile she has to work to hide even though life has dealt her more work than most

She has a sarcastic wit and a sharp tongue

I’ve sewn her together into this perfect angel and I love her

And I know she will keep my heart forever wrapped in a poem in her desk drawer
