Baby Boo -Kennie Takuro

Blanched Lights

Not a purple tale
Not a tiny fairy
Not a plausible reason
For why i fell…
Couldn’t let you know
That you were my Romeo
Enveloped by the fear
That I was far from Juliet
With no missing glass slipper
Still I longed to be your Cinderella…
It’s a little too soon

But beyond that, when the lights go dim, when the show is over, when everyone leaves and you are all that remains, Without the weave, without the body enhancers and the makeup, then you crack up over the genuine moments you have made;

The way you walk, the way you talk, the way you just cannot pronounce a word,
The way you smile, your silly face in a selfie.
Your crazy food combinations, your flaws and cake flops.

Your stretch marks that look like your favorite animal,
Your birthmark so unique you wish you could show it to the world.
The sit up and squat routines you…
