A Poem by Raevyne

You never knew me,

Before my eyes were caked black

Before pessimism was my armour

Before my heart wrapped itself in ugliness

Ugliness that became my image of myself,

That you loved anyway.


You never knew me,

Yet you see me as I wish I was

Yet you see my face free of scorn

Yet you see behind my sabotage,

Sabotaged self that I gave to you,

That you loved anyway.

You know me now

But not that you really have changed me

But not that I trust the reflection in your eyes

But not that you finally made me believe

Believe that I am not monster because I know

That you love me anyway.

(You tell me I am beautiful

But I have never admitted 

It is you who makes me that way)
