Tina Turner taught Mick Jagger how to dance. So really, you’ve “got the moves like Turner.”
I AM WORDLESS
i am not a fucking piece of art
the freckles on my arms are not worth more or less
than the scars
your appreciation of my body
does not dictate how i feel in my own skin
if you call me beautiful
i will correct you
I AM DARK
but just because you added milk in the form of “beautiful”
does not make me any less of a fire
and i will burn you to the ground if you ever try to make me feel small
i am bursting out of my skin
and your ropes will not thread me back together once i implode
so back away before i spit your sentences back at you.
I am worth more than your words and twice as much as your hands.
