"What if I kiss all the spots you taught yourself to hate? What if I placed my hands on them and left them still, long enough for my heat to join yours and you to forget there was ever air between our skin? What if I love all you loathe and what if I spend my days dirtying up your brain that was washed? Show you new pictures of the same you you started avoiding in the mirror? What if I say all they say is wrong and fill your ears with honest words in a language you stopped practicing? What if I plant new flowers in the places you frown at, and teach you the names of them as they bloom? What if I told you to never cut them and let the petals decorate the floor as you twirl through your life? What if you forget you were ever anything other than beautiful?"
