“What lies behind you and what lies before you pales in comparison to what lies inside of you.”-Ralph Waldo Emerson

She’s drinking on the balcony
her eyes don’t concern the sights they feed
And her right to turn
into something better
gets swallowed with every drip she drinks.

I saw the same darkened eyes today
but never tucked into the same face
A million repeats of that glamour, that shame
and that little itch of hate
when those eyes were layed on me.

Will I be strong enough one day
to look at a mirror and say
‘This is good enough.
I’m happy with what I see.’

She throws drinks from the balcony
and hopes she’ll make the cement bleed
If we were friends, I’d be safe to see
that noone will die exactly like me.
