Pretty girls have it rough. Stay strong.

Perfect body, stunning eyes.
Looks alive, but dead inside.
Abused, bemused, used and broken.
Silenced, troubles stay unspoken.

Once bright eyes that since have darkened.
Devils, demons, bad boys harken.
Innocence that has been stolen,
Troubles, pain, the list keeps rolling.

Hidden from the world of love,
Cursed by your gift from above.
Good men too shy to speak to you,
Bad guys the only ones you knew.

They lust, they lie, don't empathise,
They hurt you, don't apologize.
They don't love you for who you are.
Once bright, but now a dying star.

A great piece of poetry, Bruvton, that many a girl will no doubt be able to relate to.

I read in some criminal psychology researches: once abused is always abused. Hope that it's not true in every case, but I don't think that girls who live a long time in criminal could be changed easily (hookers, pimps, for example).

That's very true. Abusers have a psychological strategy where they make the victim believe they deserve the abuse and that they can't survive without the abuser, even though it isn't true. Although, I have heard of victims escaping the abuser.

I like the poem a lot. Great metaphor and I could feel the emotions pouring from the poem. I like the flow, word play and you really capture the pain of a dying star. Great poem.
