Pretty

by paulina.♥   Mar 31, 2005


When I look in the mirror,
I can see
A girl looking back at me.
But she isn’t as pretty
As I hoped she would be.

Her eyes surrounded by eyeliner, so dark,
She’s afraid that someone will make a rude remark.
She wears a smile and looks at me,
But she isn’t as pretty
As I hoped she would be.

I look deep in her eyes,
Then I realize.
She is not happy looking at me,
But she still isn’t as pretty
As I hoped she would be.

The girl breaks down,
Her smile quickly turns into a frown.
Tears, I start to see,
But she still isn’t as pretty
As I hoped she would be.

She starts screaming, yelling, hitting, crying,
Sniffling, loving, hating, dying.
I look at the girl,
She looks back at me.
She is just as pretty
As I knew she could be.

    Aww, shucks.

    However, pure brilliance. I love the idea of having a photo to go with the poem: a picture is a thousand words (so I suppose that saves writing space!).

    If your talking about you, then your blind. Cuz your pretty damn hot, and you damn well know it :P but I love this poem. Even though I'm not a girl, and can't really relate.. I know the feeling of being 'ugly' on the inside and out.. nice job!
