herself to her sister and falls short.
with her dad, but he’s not listening.
geometry without trying.
with her boyfriend because he’s such a jerk.
disgusting to herself.
when she is alone and not.
away, hoping someone will find her.
back and to realize nothing’s changed.
in tears and cries in words.
nothing but sleeping pills.
only in her dreams and wakes up crying.
razors in the bathroom drawer.
beautiful lines into her skin.
that by her stripes she’ll be healed.
