Three Months of Winter

Image

If we are the summation of

everything

we have ever experienced,

why do I find everyone so beautiful?

Perhaps we internalize

all the pain, hurt, and ugliness

of life and

reflect only the wonder of it.

 

I think this could be true;

that we are real

monsters

on the inside and 

Aphrodites

on the out.

 

The sun 

is confirming this

in blatant, hot stares–

Skin burning on the outside,

and I feel like

Persephone;

three months of winter.
