Am I Good Enough for You?

by Phoenix Martinez

I've cared so much
that my heart is now numb
empty of feelings, just hate
Do I care enough for you now?
I've scrubbed my skin, so free of dirt
and covered all my scars
Not a mark shows your actions
am I clean enough for you now?
I've covered my tears
hidden my eyes
I've dressed myself up
with laces and lies
am I pretty enough for you now?
My willpower's gone
I feel only hate
I'm a spiteful person
you drove me to this fate
am I loving enough for you now?
I've wiped off the blood
shook off the pain
perfection was something I strove for
I'm your biggest mistake
your greatest flaw
so hidden I've stayed
so nobody saw
I've repressed my feelings
Ignored things you've said
I've put a cover
on my very being
I'm worthless in your eyes
now I'm hopeless and dead
my soul resting in peace
Can you answer me now
Am I good enough for you, mother?

Dear Phoenix,

My message didn't "fit" the "required" amount of "characters."

Sorry, getting REAL LATE, & couldn't figure out how to send the "message."

I had a few things to say, tell you about my experiences & hopefully comfort you!

If you care about any of that, please just let me "know" who you are & about this "comment" from "Love-Quotes"!
Best Wishes, Phoenix,
