Wipe It Off.


I could wipe off 90% of that so called beauty with a kleenex...

I see that your outershell is gorgeous

Underneath that.. It's pure ugly


Not your face.

Your insides. Your guts. your soul.

Ughh.. maybe we have something in common

Maybe... you have been hurt

Maybe you just don't give a fuck

Maybe you don't want anyone to trample all over you again..

Maybe it's something much deeper

Something you can never unsee

But see I'm nice to everyone

Sweet as candy

I let people step all over me

Until I break under all of the pressure...

My true form shows

I blacken...

I do not harm those who did me no harm

My overall life's frustrations are aimed at one particular person

And may lord have mercy on whomever is my target

Because I just don't give a fuck.

I don't want anyone to trample all over me again

Because it's something much deeper

And my smile cannot simply be wiped off of my face

You stole it from me.
