In my dreams I am a different girl.
A girl who can open her mouth
and let fresh flowers come out.
No, sugar and spice.
Whatever is sweet and lingers.
I dream that I don’t have knives
instead of teeth.
That whatever broke me
(which would be you, by the way)
In my dreams I wanted you less.
In my dreams I am free
and that means you don’t exist.
