Suicide Girls

Are you watching?

Contortion is rife in my body,

But it’s all for you.

Stripped naked

Flesh stretched around visible bones

Protruding

Just displaying my fragility for you

Long, bony fingers

Down

Down

“DOWN”

Until the bare

Barren

Mound is touched

“Ah, uh, oh, god, oh, yes”

Are you happy now?

Are you watching?

As I stare into your black reflective eyes,

Cold, judgemental eyes

Pricing me up.

Dear Lens, my only friend

Tell me how I feel

Am I pretty enough?

Am I good enough?

Are you listening?

Are you watching?

For I see only you,

And a girl.

Reflected,

In your black, black soul.
