She is waging an all out war.
Wishing to be set free
Determined to win, even if she
She uses this beautiful blade
Carving her deepest insecurities to
She stands in front of her mirror
A pale, skinny frame
with dazed, empty eyes.
She appears to be a ghost,
something out of a horror movie.
The tears and mascara streaks on her face.
The harsh taste of bile in her breath.
The blood pouring down her wrists.
But society created this monster.
By day, she is a barbie doll.
By night, an insecure mess.
And soon a young beauty
falls victim to the pressure to be perfect
that she became addicted to
but in the end could no longer bear.
The entire world screams
Get up and fight,
But you hold your ground.
Stand by your comrades
like a soldier.
Protect your friends
like a shepherd.
You're no coward.
You're a lover,
a peacemaker in this world of war.
Love will always be
louder than any cry,
stronger than the chains that bind us.
You fight for the what you love,
what you love fights back,
Not wanting to let go doesn't make you weak. Sometimes, holding on is the strongest thing you can do.
I am no longer me.
I look in the mirror and see
the ghost of what once was,
the regret of what never will be.
I will always be wrong.
The monster you've become
rips apart the essence of me.
My seams forever undone.
But I will never forget.
How I let you in and
*what you did to me.
The worst part about falling
is not when you hit the bottom.
Not getting back up after the fall.
Not when you have to let go,
Not when you have to move on.
The worst part about falling
is knowing that you are slipping.
Knowing you are slipping, deep down
into a pit of demons and despair.
Knowing you are breaking.
Knowing you will be held hostage
by the devil inside you.
Knowing you need help,
but when you finally cry out,
no one is there to save you.
And you just have to allow yourself to fall.
I'm your girl.
The girl who will always smile
and listen to your petty complaining
as if it were actually a crisis.
Your girl to pretend everything is okay,
to act as if I actually believe in love.
Your girl to take advantage of,
to bend and beat and break
but never ****,
because she is expected to stand up and smile
like nothing happened.
I'm the girl who's been hiding the whole time.
The girl who's not okay.
Who's sick of being your *****.
Who cannot take it anymore
That girl who is actually going to be real.
But you don't want real.
You want a little perfect Barbie
who you can play with.
You think you need someone
who can simply smile and look pretty for you.
I guess I'm stuck being your girl.
Screaming, screaming, screaming.
She sunk further and further down under.
The deeper she got,
the more entangled in her lies she became.
Fighting, fighting, fighting.
She had been in constant combat mode.
But the struggle was only halfhearted,
the end was inevitable.
Dying, dying, dying.*
She was losing all she ever had.
Her relief grew
with the pain.
