they thought I  was a medium


i don’t know why it hurts so bad

i’ve always been an x-small

after last year

it went up to a small

i’ve been fighting it ever since

i’m tired of wrestling with my shirts

tired of being afraid of the mirror


why does a name mean so much

they could’ve decided

a medium is a small

why do we put so much value 

on sizes and names and labels


why do i want to be an x-small again

no one sees

and yet they do

INFP who names inanimate objects, loves to laugh, and is a proud old soul. You can often find her planning out her next crazy project, hugging books, or telling stories about her day that *may* be a little exaggerated.
