who is she
she with the charcoal lids
wet lips
mascara smeared
round hips

she with the the torn stockings
her bra strap faultering
just over her shoulder
smile that could be a frown
scornful lips mocking

she can't see her beauty
the pain leaves her alone
she finds friends in fucking
gives herself to anyone
who'll take her home

she with the bruises
deeper than skin
deeper than any eyes would
care to begin
to see

she is someones daughter
someones sister
someones mother
someones friend
everyones lover

she smites the pain
with rough lips and kisses
in dark alleyways
day old stubble
in strange rooms
brutal unforgiving thrusts
she stabs at her heart, everyday
everyday

she who doesnt cry
but inside
she dies

she slaughters her existence
with latex
cigarette smoke
faces with no names
friendly smiles with much to gain

she
who I want
so badly
to heal

but she is nothing
without the pain
it makes her real
it fills her cup
gives her purpose
the only thing she
truly feels

and life for her would not be the same
with out mutilating her soul
to realize her purpose

she kills her self to live
everyday, every way

I watch her
I hate her
I love her

I want to break her.

painfilled and heartbreaking this is a piece that will be in my head for a while. everything involved was said to that extent that there was nothing left for the reader to even have to think of...you have said it all with this.

Just because I'm terrible at commenting on poetry doesn't mean I don't like this. :) (Smile)
