Skin Deep

Look deeply into my eyes and tell me what do you see
Pain and a mesmerizing smile that hides from the outskirts of the world
Scars that were never healed because of told words
The mind destroyed her beauty and everything in between
It left her bleeding from a suicidal dream
A dream that seemed so real yet so overwhelming
That she woke with blood dripping from her veins
Insomnia crept upon her day and night
Leaving her unsettled with life tormenting her very soul
Leave me now I'm begging you
Just let me love myself for once
Let me be me and let me look into the mirror to stare back at my own reflection
At the end of it all my happiness and self worth is highly above it all
Now will you end up like me or stop it before it's too late??
