Chemically, Artificially Me (Anonymous)

Previous entries here and here.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

if I were less of me

and more like you

would I be alright?

would you love me more

if I looked like the models in the magazine?

boney flesh, bared on glossy paper, beautiful?

layers of colours, a madeup mask.. hides you..

redefining your idenity

wrapped up in your image

and forgetting that you breathe

your tiny frame

breakable like glass

never thin enough..

the pages

they tell you who you are..

who you should be..

tired of the comparison

“the perfect look”

change this… change that

look like this..

this ever changing standard of beauty

distorted by the consuming vanity

physical scrutiny

you forget that I am real

you forget that I feel

I am not an object

I am not on display

and would it be okay if I were just ‘me’?

apart from the vision you have for me

I fade away

..and only this distorted image remains

who am I?

and what have I become?

chemically, artificially, me

    Models is a magazine
    photshopped beauties is what we dont see
    fake tittied wonders that make us drool
    men seem to think that they are cool

    little do they do its from the help of a scapel
    their food for the day? its less than an apple
    starving, barfing and so much more
    if you dont like my body hun, theres the door!

    My child lays softly on my breast. Soft, sagging, empty.

    Once life flowed, rivers of mana. Now flat, wrinkly, loose.

    More full than ever, my life, created from the manifestations from my dreams. Fluid, dreamy, open.

    Nothing could ever happen to my body that would strip from my soul of the love that been born.

    Stunning simply stunning! I wish everyone out there could read this and truly understand that no matter what beauty truly does come from the inside.
