gummy bear

gummy bears are short

but she towers over me

an avid lover of sports

with bruises on her knees

a kid and an adult

she straddles the line:

the heart of a child

but a grown up mind

ponies and physics

keep her up most nights

alkenes and animatics

light flickers in her eyes

clear headed and neat

plagued by procrastination

drawing makes her upbeat

and filled with frustration

her flavour is sweet

but i may receive sour

if i step on her feet

she’ll shoot me a glower

she loves her friends

but can’t take their praise

like gummies she may bend

but she will never stray

confused and lost in life

jealous of others’ headstarts

she hates herself, sometimes

but i love her with my whole heart
