What It's About

It's not about
Being skinny
It's not about
Fitting into that dress
For the dance
It's not about
That.

It might be about
The way you look right
Through me
It might be about
The way I look right
Through me
It might be about
That.

But who knows?

It's probably about
The way I want to break
My own face
With my own knuckles
It's probably about
The way I feel sick
When I see myself
It's probably about
The way I want to reach down
Inside myself
And pull everything up
And out
That makes me hate me
It's probably about
That.
