Bright Eyes, Sharp Teeth

When we met your hair was
Long enough to tickle your chin and,
Your eyes were bright enough
To sooth the acid on your tongue

Maybe because that acid never used to burn me,
Or maybe I just hated myself enough
That I didn't mind when it did

I think sometimes,
That maybe your teeth weren’t as sharp
As I remember them,

But when I have to soothe my own scars
Late at night
I remind myself not to forget,
That monsters can be beautiful,

But it won’t stop them from slowly
Tearing you apart
