Nail polish

by remembertoexhale

Tonight a boy I used to like
told me that my heart was the colour of my nails
which were black at first look
but upon closer gaze
he would’ve seen that they
were in fact painted carefully
a forest green
which were not given enough time to dry
and as a result
they took on the imprints of my duvet
textured and patterned
onto nails that were too short
to normally be painted
I don’t blame him however
I didn’t exactly try to make him look
who the heck has time for people
who only see what they want to
