Favorite Quote:
Love is anterior to life, posterior to death, initial of creation, and the exponent of breath.
-Emily Dickinson


We’ll do the craziest things
to our bodies
for a useless
cause
Not even worth
the slightest

We’ll do it anyway
Squeeze into shoes
too tight
will never come off
Even if my feet
have blisters
are sore

The vile
obnoxious
chemicals
we’ll apply to our faces
Now we’re beautiful
To try to make
us
catch your eye

What a shame
How naked
they are
Out in public
Snowing cold
and still they’re naked
Still beautiful

We’ll kill ourselves
for all the right reasons
Make ourselves
Ugly
Damage
all that we are
because we want
to be beautiful
All for you

I’m not a part
of the
killing ourselves
I want to be strong
beautiful for myself
Not some boy
who won’t
remember my name
Only a week later
