she washed me in her watercolors

who i was before i met her
and who i wanted to be after

she washed me in her watercolors
but the black ink of who i really was
bled back through

she washed me in her watercolors by 

we can wish to be
something we’re not

white bread and average
the cloyingly mushy middle
of a brilliant girl sandwich
