Teenage Girls

Teenage girls

smell like sweet perfume and sweat in the summer

they talk fast about absolutely everything and absolutely

nothing

sometimes at the same exact time

They hold their pasts at a safe distance behind them

and their futures tight to their chests

They face forward with clear unwavering eyes

the face of a girl hurt but not broken

They smile like sunrises

and can build entire worlds in their sleep

They can talk you up

or tear you down

their words cut far too deep

They are angels and devils and sour and sweet

They are everything this universe has to offer

but they are just

teenage girls
