Imperfect

Imperfection
Oozes from every wound
Making seen
Little girls'
Deadly defeat

Easily won
By any tried
Feeling worthy 
In the moment
But filthy just thereafter

So gullable
So stupid
So easy
So lucrative it seems

Yet no one understands
The hurt within
Just trying to feel worthy
Just trying to fit in
though she swore
One of those
She won't become
Here she is
Pleading one of seven
Deadly sins

In moments briefly passed
A quick fix
Again she became
Opening herself up 
For others' demand

She lays.
With deed done
Staring into green stars
Glowing in the dark

Eyes watering from 
Lust filled lost grip

Anger suddenly sweeps
The want to grab
Weapons and harm
Unbearable to her heart

No one will know
No one will see
She tries to convince
Doubt rising within

Not worthy
Just a toy
Nothing more
Just a whore
Just on display
Just for sale 
To highest bid they say

What be the price
For spoilt goods
Ruined by predecessors
That came Before
She knew who she was

Love
Cherish
acceptance

A simple price to pay
But a doll so broken 
Bleeding
Its a fortune to lose

Her hair wips in her face.. 
As she stands staring
At what soon might be her 
end..

Nothing
Worthless
Toy

Broken
Obsolete
Stern faced
Doll

One quick swipe
And fight is gone
Weeks of trying
To the dogs

One quick swipe
And crimson
Is seen
Gushing out
Over pale white skin
It flows and flows

Sooner now
The end is near
Crimson starts to flow
Life bleeding out
Hopes
Dreams
Ambitions 
Gone

Just a shell of the girl
I used to know so well..
