I can stretch my face
And smile and laugh
And then quickly retract my face
Back to its original disposition
“I’m head over heels in love with you”
“I’ve bent over backwards for you”
Such words mean nothing
When we can easily stretch ourselves
I can pretend to look one thing
Or pretend to feel another thing—
Stretch my façades to their limits,
Remodel myself at will
is in the eye of the beholder”
If Beauty is a shape-shifter
How does the Beholder know what to feel?
Who can see my taut form
When I’ve stretched too much?
Who can repair this person
Who cannot rebound back into place?
“If it ain’t broke,
don’t fix it”
What was wrong with me
That I had to reshape myself?
Stretch to impossible lengths?
Stretch to improbable forms?
Stretch to incomprehensible faces?
Stretched to indistinguishable fibers.
“Is there a doctor in the house?”
“The doctor is in.”
Can you repair me?
Will I be able to heal?
I want to see
“Have you looked in a mirror?”
“I know you are but what am I?”
Do you know
What I don’t know?
“If only I could turn back time”
“A broken clock is right twice a day”
Such words mean nothing
When we can easily move the hands on the clock
I can start here
And start with you
And then quickly take a step back
Asking “Can you see the real me?”
some background >.>
ended up writing yet another poem, this is just poem year >.>
i cant even remember now where the inspiration for this came from
elastic fibers are found in the skin, and several other places in the body- they make it stretchy
this girl has "stretched herself" too much- hiding her feelings and "putting different masks/faces on," and it's gotten to where she's not sure who she is anymore, what her true feelings are
sometimes elastic fibers can get overstretched and can't rebound back to their original form- can those injuries heal, or be fixed? does this girl have hope of regaining herself even if she's been "stretched too much?"
she wants someone else's perspective of her, if they can still see her real self, what do they see in her, and she wants to know others' true feelings too
it's useless to wish she hadn't done this to herself- she can just take control and start solving her problem now- start over, i guess
oh, i remember what happened now that caused this lol, curse myself >.>'
thanks anatomy lol
hope you enjoy!^^'
