Dear Amelia

By Elliot Rodriguez


They say we are


But we are

Normally beautiful


And you are my starlight,

And you are my sun.

and You are the light

in my eyes

from the fire we set


When we found the bottle

We drank,

and drank,

‘til our eyes

Turned red.


The flame was lit,

Almost as warm as us.

So sad that you

Burned too.
