Pretty Little Girl

I know of a pretty little girl.

Her porcelain skin etched to mark

the tally of her sins.

 

I know of a pretty little girl

who peeled off her skin

and sewed it back tighter

just so her bones would show.

 

I know of a pretty little girl

who swallowed a flame

to burn the fat from within.

 

I know of a pretty little girl

who stapled her eyes shut

so she couldn’t see the temptation.

 

I know of a pretty little girl

who didn’t think she was so pretty.

 

I know of a pretty little girl

who destroyed the pretty

destroyed the innocence

and destroyed the girl

so she could become

a skeleton.
