Suicide Sarah

There’s something about you that makes looking away impossible
You’re not what the world would label as pretty.
You’re not soft and sweet and tender
And all the butter words used to describe beautiful
Your face is finely chiseled
And your body stands out like a lone nipple on a cold rainy night.
You’re in love with a boy whose mother left him on the stairs of her mother’s house to go follow a man who never loved her.
You’re in love with a boy whose grandmother saved his good clothes only for a father who barely visited
And so he’s always waiting for a big day, a big moment, a big reason; before he gives you all his love.
When he should be kissing the spaces in between your toes
You smoke on rooftops to take away the heartache
You allow others cut you and get high off watching yourself bleed
Men have been looking for God inside of you and you have been looking for God in the faces of strangers who offer you their coat
Everybody wants you at their parties because they know you’re as good at them as you are at blowjobs
But nobody wants to know how many demons you had to pretend didn’t exist before stepping into the sunlight.
 
Everybody wants to drink with you
Everybody wants to dance with you
Everybody wants to fuck around with you
But nobody wants to walk blindly through the dark to help you find yourself
Well, damn everybody
Damn the calvary and damn the cross
Damn the saints and damn the whores
Damn the beggar down the street called you ugly because you wouldn’t spare a coin
Damn everybody!
Do they not know that the sun borrows light from your fingertips?
Do they not know that you give colour to the rose?
Do they not know that your breathe is studied by the highest of connoisseurs to make the best of perfumes?
 
There’s something about you that makes walking away impossible
Be patient with the world, whiles it tries to figure it out.
