It Takes You Forever To Text Me Back

Doll in Wonderland

I am all shaky hands

And aching heart

And it's beyond you to know when to hold either

Please, don't call me beautiful

It causes shrinkage

Of me, inside myself

It makes me curl up tighter

And close the curtains

So the me inside, can cry and sleep, undisturbed

Because it means you don't see me

The monster inside

All jealousy and insecurities

Fumbling and falling

And knowing

That if I cut myself, I would bleed to death

Before you'd even remember

To consider me

And my paper doll feelings

And text me back, in a timely fashion

Even just to say, no, or hi

Sometimes the beautiful are so ugly inside.

So save your nice words

And roving hands

I don't think I can take this

Constant trespass on my heart

I'd rather be alone.
