saline flows from tear ducts & collagen bleeds from puckered lips--the maculation that goes along with a (futile) attempt at attaining perfection. your hips jut out like razors & your ribs hold your skin so painfully close in a persistant pinch that it leaves your skin black&blue. your veins are stained with black ink & you bleed continuously like a neverending stigmata.

(do you still think you're beautiful?)
