She's storybook perfection

gleaming at rainbows in the dark

sipping air out of little porcelain tea cups

talking to an imaginary friend that she named

-No One-

and shes just a child stuck in a

much-too-grown-up body

screaming in song "look at me now"

but you wont,

knowing it's truly your fault

but she loves being lost.

Wrapping herself in dress-up clothes

and too much glitter,

Falling dramatically to the floor

in a pretty princess pink as the sky dress

that beautifully shows her scars.

She's drowning in doll smiles and lullabies

and singing,

-

"Wishing wishing on a star

Not too close, I'm just as far

Keep away now, let me dream

Let me die in muffled scream"

-

She's storybook perfection

(deranged and oh so lovely)

and she's loving every minute.
