Mirror, Mirror

Damn.
stop looking at me like that.
I see the hate in your eyes, you never hold back
the only honesty I've ever seen came from your heart of glass.
call me shallow, talk about me behind my back-
leave me battered, feeling shattered
You always speak it raw, but what I feel it never mattered
Who I am and who I want to be are separate matters-
Over the first, I would rather take the latter,
I'd even trust my shadow over you,
Cos he flatters me more than you do,
But even still his true darkness shines through
When the white light turns blue
you just say what you mean, ugly is what ugly be,
but what of that ugliness is really me?
I'm never really free
from the bondage you keep me in
In your frame I see the seed of somethingĀ 
much more sinister within me than I could ever be
The truth hurts when the truth is jealousy
And since a jealous he is still a jealous me,
I'm never gonna love what I see
every time we meet, I just can't breathe
Before we cover me up with a black piece,
I'm already beat cos of All the things you made me eat
putting strain on my feet
how could you do this to me? I'm only 18
And so are you,Ā  a silver flu
I want to break you apart till my hands bleed
I want to take those small blue eyes and pluck em out
make em larger, and space em out
Rip the lips right off your mouth
make em even, and add a little more pout
Lift the hips and make em less stout
Take the chin off and stomp it on the ground
fix the ears cos you speak too damn loud
Take your skin, fix the brows
paint the skin fairer, take out the speckles of brown
Even the features and draw the nose down
repaint the whole thing till I see a new skinscape
everything in it's place, till I can't recognize your face
but I know you and how you're bound,
And then you crack and flutter to the ground
And I see you in the window behind the shelf,
laughing that laugh I know so well,
an evil smile with the sound
I pick up a dead piece of you,
And cut my self and my self esteem down
And scream
"Are you happy now?"
