I've had to say it a few times in my #life
that I don't want you to go through my cell phone.
It is not because I have anything to hide,
No #DeepDarkSecrets hiding there, not even "suggestive content,
No, I just don't want you to see how many #selfies I take.
It may seem silly or ridiculous to you,
how many times I can capture a fraction of a second
of feeling particularly #attractive-
I just want to get it right.
Smirks, winks, expressions of surprise,
or those times when I'm attempting to be deep or #edgy-
I don't know...
Maybe it is a little silly.
There's just something a little satisfying about feeling #pretty,
and prior to contrary belief, that's a rare thing for me.
That's why these "selfies" are hidden away,
deep within the dark recesses of my iPhone.
I delete them when I think too hard about it,
because they mostly fail to capture how I feel, how I am,
sometimes I think they make me look scary,
too boundless, or intimidating.
That's just not #me.
#NoFilters, no editing,
just a young lady who spent too much time on her makeup
even though she'll be #StayingInHerRoom all day.
So don't give me that mischevious look when I request that you,
"Please, don't go through my phone."
Because you are so quick to #judge,
and I know you don't mean it,
But I am so quick to take it to #heart.
