You can’t help but see something that isn’t so pretty
Standing in a one way reflection;
You can’t help but see yourself
As a disgusting object he made you become
Don’t try to make it your fault
For his sticky selfish hands touching
Questioning parts of your anatomy that you beg to be covered
Instead of holding you in his arms
When you were alone with him
His only intention was to find beauty behind the curtains.
While you tried to keep those closed
For only you and the one who deserves it
It was insane how you were so wrapped into his world.
You lost the beauty you had when you was fully covered.
The sparkle in your eye;
The true smile on your face
Dropped to the ground
With every piece of clothing.
You didn’t say no
Because, once upon a time, he was the only one listening
To your sad beating drums
As you once swayed to the music
You only heard in your head
As it slowly stopped
Now the intense throbbing of your heart
Takes over the screams you keep inside.
When you finally let go of his tight grip
Letting the blood rush to your cold untouched bits
Slowly falling into a pit of nothing
But worries and sadness
Then, when you least expect it,
Another light outshines through the pity in your eyes
See, this one holds you
Like you’re not an object
But a human being that deserves to be touched
In a way that leaves your body shining
with joy and wonders.
Him talking to you in a slurred tone
Makes your ears sing with enjoyment
Makes your lips curl a shape that only love does
The words he whispers
perfectly matching to the music that only plays in your head.
Let him dance by your side,
He’s not looking down
Just straight into your big sappy eyes
That once told a story of innocence.
But he’s not looking for that story
He’s passionately presses his warm lips upon yours
To heal the broken pieces
So you both can sway to the rhythm of happiness
He picks you up
Holds you there
So people can admire the true beauty
Of a human being.
