Bloody Mary

Bloody Mary

A Poem by Black Widow

She’s breaking,

And she cannot be fixed.

She’s missing,

However, she won’t be missed.

She still shakes

Because of her fears.

She’s crying over

The wasted tears.

She says, “You’re right,

I have too many scars.”

In her short life

She’s been very far.

She says, “I know,

I wish I could be thin.”

She fights another battle

And sometimes, she doesn’t win.

She feels so flawed

She doesn’t know where to start,

From her messed up hair

To her messed up heart.

 

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary

Wishes her arms didn’t look so scary,

She’s holding more than she can carry,

Was told that blood isn’t sanitary.

 

She doesn’t see a point

To continue the fight.

When her restless days

Turn to restless nights.

Life isn’t always fair.

If anyone, she can tell.

They avoid going near her

And it hurts like hell.

She cries out in the rain;

“God, what was your cause?

Why did you put me here on earth

With so many flaws?

Was I part of a plan?

Or was I born just to die?

Will I impact the world

Or at least impact someone’s life?”

She doesn’t know how to live.

She’s never had anything to gain.

All she truly wants

Is for you to end her pain.

 

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary

Wishes her arms didn’t look so scary,

She’s holding more than she can carry,

Was told that blood isn’t sanitary.

 

Bloody Mary, Bloody Mary;

She is quite a visionary,

The world is her adversary,

The tale of her life is cautionary.

Sylvia Plath- like....

she looks in the mirror, sees Bloody Mary---doesn't like what she sees on the outside or the inside...

"was told blood isn't sanitary"

as if she was unclean...people can be so mean....and just destroy our self-image...if we let them.
