    This is a poem about a girl I thought I knew.


    Perfume does not cover the stench of a corpse

    full of shit and maggots

    Red nail polish to cover the blood on finger nails

    instead of just washing them

    Makeup covers thin self-inflicted scars as a blanket

    over semen stains on the mattress

    Defamation of another covers one’s own insecurities

    anything to stay reputable

    Pretty hair to cover the lack of a brain and pretty pictures

    taped over a decaying soul

    A plastic cross will never cover for the sins of the dead

    full of shit and maggots

    I agree with this.

    It does seem very hateful and I can almost feel your anger.

    ^ Yeah! Holy, crap! Agreed!
    As I read line by line, I felt like I needed to shield myself with something!
    Amazing work. It would be really awesome to hear something like that at a coffeehouse or something. Very high-impact. Lots of imagery. Loads of bad feelings - but it's good.

    By the end; after I had a moment to think, I felt a bit like I'd just taken out some of my own anger and I was suddenly a bit more at ease.

    woah, I had no idea this poem would be that strong. Thanks for telling me. And KittyGirl, I'm glad it could benefit from this. :)
