you could do better than her
they said
you could have someone more attractive

is that what you think you are?

if you took a second
to put down
the bleach and the makeup

and put forth the effort
to have a single fucking thought
of someone other than yourself

you might realize how infrequently you do that
and what other people think of you because of it

oh, to think i could still be
with someone who's so fucking attractive
she has to create a new mask
for every person she meets

keep crafting those beautiful disguises, honey
because i had way more time than i needed
to strip them away
and you're right
you're very right
to be so ashamed and afraid of the person underneath them

Re: damn

what brought this on? nothing, other than the memory of a conversation i was involved in about a year ago.

people are telling me i should write something when i'm not angry/mopey/otherwise negative, but unfortunately that's the only time something like this pops into my head.

done moving for this month, found a temporary bay-area reprieve. hopefully, arizona next month.

Re: damn

Not sure if you were intending to write a poem... but it was good.
