Poem – “Like Mine”

Like Mine // by Jennifer Patino

 

Hidden orchids
on bare legs
would fade
to whispers
of lavender

Observing healing bruises
like watching
watercolors
dry, change hue,
& fade with time

Press the violet stars
kissed by blue tinged dirt
until
they no longer hurt;
Amethyst buds shine
on fragile doll skin,
like mine
