I wish I could peel off my skin

Layer by layer

until I looked hollow

until you could look through my body

and see my brains

 

I wish that I could peel off my skin

Until the fat globbed off of me

and I stopped looking like someone

 

someone who needs you

to tell me that I am really pretty

 

 

I wish I could peel off my skin

layer by layer

until you could see my muscles

holding together strong bones

and I stopped looking like someone you pitied

 

I wish i could peel off my skin

because maybe that horror

will finally get it through your head

that fat is not the worst thing I could be

and I’m not the worst thing I could be

 

I wish I could peel off my skin

so I could become this ‘health risk’ you claim me to be

you claim

that its all about helping me well,

thank you for your concern

but fuck you for your judgement

    Yes, anyone who is judging you is avoiding something unacceptable in themselves. They’re using you. YOU are MAGNIFICENT. You are amazing. I wouldn’t have you any other way than how you are right now, and I guess, whatever it is you become next. xoxoxoxox
