Pretty and Plain

there's something so sad about being pretty 
but not having the confidence to match, 


is what my mother tells me. 
i wish it wasn't true, but it is. 
and i cry rivulets of tainted 
tears. the vision of my unsightly 
inner corridors is blindingly dark. 

how peculiar, but not 
surprising in the very least. 

every piece of me is a piece of 
longing, and every piece is 
vying for a little bit of attention. 


and so i will wait, untouched,
unwavering, and delicate, like 
a wax-polished daisy in paper 
cup. 

i will be pretty, pretty and plain
pretty and untouched. 

 mother knows best, i suppose. 
Um..I've never been kissed.

    relatable. that last line... it felt a little bitter, kind of sarcastic, and full of emotion. "and so i will wait, untouched,
    unwavering, and delicate, like
    a wax-polished daisy in paper
    cup." this IMAGERY!
    and the message board, yesss
    and same, never been kissed. waiting a while, even tho i have a bf

    This was relatable except for the pretty part cause that's the opposite of me. But I've never kissed anyone thought I definitely could have if I wanted to but I'm waiting for someone like Tobias, Percy Jackson, Keefe Sencen, Peeta Melark you know someone like that to come along cause honestly what's the point of kissing anyone else? Also I love lamenting woes like a Victorian lady it's fun.
