The Self

“You’re beautiful!”

I’m sorry what?

“I said, you’re beautiful”

Why are you lying?


“You have amazing hair!”

It’s really not

“But it’s so curly.”

It tangles, it snares

I wish it straight.


“You’re  beautiful!”

I’m sorry, I’m not

“But you are!”

Why do you lie?


“Your skin is flawless.”

It’s make-up

“I’m sure you don’t need it.”

You can’t see under it…

My skin, it’s red, a real mess.


“You’re beautiful!”

You joke!

 “But I’m not!”

Yes you are.


“You’re eyes are striking”


“They look like sea glass.”



“You’re beautiful!”



You’re sure?


“You’re tattoos are amazing.”

Yes, I think so too

“They look good on you!”

You think so?


“You’re beautiful!”

Thank you, so are you.

“You really think so?”

Yes, you are stunning.
