A relationship through the eyes of someone with a mental illness that everyone disregards because she is attractive. They will put you through hell and make it feel so good that you want to stay.

I am so ugly,

There is always a smile on my undeserving lips,

You call me beautiful as you reach for a kiss.

You don’t know me,

If you did you would run and hide,

But you lay with me on my bed side.

Does it hurt you?

When I bite into your flesh?

You make sounds,

I can feel what is coming next.

I hold your head down,

And suddenly remember your name.

It’s all the same when our faces are painted

And our clothes are plastered on.

With indignation I sit in your car as you play your same old songs,

It is not enough,

You do not even try.

Please do not hold my hand when I pretend to cry.

Does it feel so good when I pin you down?

Do you like that I touch you there,

Even with people around?

Nobody is looking,

And even if they were I would not care

Let them look at us I love to see them stare.

This is so beautiful.

In your head you contemplate.

You have crossed my road and do not know whether to stay,

Yes it feels so good,

But I am so ugly.
