With a teardrop & a whimper, I say my final goodbye

By Cutting_for_Freedom

I’ll never be beautiful to you
So I starve my life away
Maybe then, one day, you’ll think I’m pretty
But I know you never will
I’ve never been called beautiful from your lips, your eyes
My best friend says it
Funny, he always means it too
Beautiful, uttered so simply from people’s lips.
They love to call the skinny ones it
Yet love doesn’t exist.
Society tells us beauty
Society feeds to us the meaning of love
Looks as though I have the short end of both.
I gave out my heart
Only to have it broken
Given back piece by piece
I was so naïve to think
You, of all people, saw me as beautiful
You, the most shallow of them all, was to
Think I was beautiful
Oh my pitiful mind
Oh my wretched soul
& my damned heart
Maybe one day you’ll tell me I’m beautiful
Beautiful just the way I am
If so, you’d never mean it.
You would lie, looking into my eyes,
Looking into my soul
& seeing it break into a million unfixable pieces
And you would laugh.
As my feelings would pour forth in the form of
Blood, beautifully flowing from every part of me
Then, as you continue to laugh & to scorn me
With a teardrop
I breathe my last tortured breath
And with a whimper
I say my final goodbye
My is finally released
Beautiful & radiant, you laugh
Because I’ll never be beautiful to you

    Its about levels of importance. if someone does not find you beautiful it is a nothing, you are not here to be beautiful to others, you are not alive to look good...you are vexed with society, then why participate in its charade?

    woman are not here to be beautiful, submissive, obedient, discarded, beat-on, insecure, belittled, thought of as less intelligent, treated like a pet project, breeders etc.......now if only you could convince the men poems like this wouldn't exist....

    ..i proudly assert my right not to participate in stupid degrading charades such as this but that doesn't make the problem go away...i've been fired from jobs for not participating & generally treated like shit...
