This is somewhat self-explanatory. I really don't like talking about it, but it needs to come out

In high school, I was considered “untouchable”

Not popular, “ugly”, undesirable

Attracting the wrong attention while pure and innocent

 

In high school, people betrayed me, and my trust

Disguised as friends and family, clothed in darkness and doubt

Stabbing me in the back through the heart with poisoned daggers

The poison has no cure

 

In high school I met a boy also disguised

Disguised as a knight in shining armour

 “Came to my rescue” he said

 

He wanted payment for this so-called “rescue”

So he took the only innocence I had left

Stole the one beautiful thing I ever had

Stole it, not given it, for I still wanted it, and I fought for it

 

Now I have nothing beautiful to call mine

No amounts of makeup or plastic surgery could ever make me beautiful

No one will want me now

 I’m tainted, damaged goods

 

All that’s left for me to do is walk away

Leave before anyone can damage me further
