You make me feel like a girl

Stop making me feel giddy and pretty

Shall I put on this floral dress

and dance in the sun.

I think I want to

because you make me want to

Stop making me giggle, I’m grown.

I don’t giggle

I can’t stop

(She’s giggling)

“You’re so cute”

(giggle)

Don’t look at me with that smirk

Stop!

I cover my eyes and look between my fingers

Can you not!?

You make me feel like a

girl

I am cute, I am small, I am sweet

Stop making me feel this way

Usually, when my feelings for someone are reciprocated, this is how I feel. Will I feel this way in the future when the feelings are mutual? Hopefully, a tiny bit.

Happy Valentine’s Day

Can’t sleep. These past three weeks, I’ve been doing well, mentally. Balanced is how I’ve been feeling. Yesterday, slowly, I tilted. This will be worked through.

I’m letting my insecurities run through me. I’m expressing my dislikes about myself knowing this won’t last long. Through the motions, I am going. I can believe and have doubt in myself, it becomes a problem when I give the doubt too much power.

What do you dislike about yourself?

My lack of certain knowledge, my inconsistency, my belly, the doubt I have in myself.

What do you like about yourself?

My straightforwardness, my creativity, my curiosity, my smile, my cheeks.

What do you accept about yourself?

I don’t know, I can’t think of anything at the moment.

This, my friend, is for you. You. Yes! You! Haha!

Liquid moons in the river

My candle is nearby

The words are bright

Liquid moons in the river

Eyes move from left to right

The words are bright

Leaves dance behind me

Eyes move from left to right

Goosebumps are happy

Leaves dance behind me

I like the chill

Goosebumps are happy

My candle is nearby

I like the chill
