too many girls write poems about how they’ve been body shamed
i beg for other people’s *** stories,
because i am broken and unloved...
and when boys snarl,
i feel alone, although
i know that they are just laughing...
i’ve found that womanhood is
half shame before everything else,
so i can only notice how
other girls wave their successes above my head,
as though being ****** is a prize and being loved is an end game,
that screams GAME OVER in bright red.
i will take my silence over your lifestyle any day,
despite the fact that i still cry when you leave.
women can’t exist without being analyzed, tested, and corrected. i wish girls wrote poems about being happy instead. Don’t @ me.
