Tears by her, Wiped by him

The painful words escape her lips

Piercing my fragile heart with every word she utters

I try to not show the pain but every now and then I slip

Tears would escape my red runny eyes every night until shut they would flutter


She made me believe that I was WORTHLESS

That I would NEVER be loved by anyone

Unless I weighed less

Others called me beautiful and skinny but I believed not a one


She made me the girl to always skip meals and always fake a smile

Only my closest friends knew of her bringing down

But even they didn’t know of the pile

Of food that I had given away or thrown


Then one day an angel flew into my life

I was very reluctant to get close to him for fear of everything she said being true

But he lured me into his arms and calmed the internal strife

Like a bowl of my favorite steamy stew


He made me see that I was beautiful in everyway

That my soft skin and honey colored hair

Were just a few of what he loved no matter what she might say

With all of my flaws he didn’t seem to care


To him I am FLAWLESS
