Mint Condition

I was beautiful once,

I was beautiful once, perfect,

I was beautiful once, perfect, pristine,

I was beautiful once, perfect, pristine, pure.

I loved every part of myself— My body

I loved every part of myself— My mind

I loved every part of myself— My abilities.

That is,

That is, until you came into my life.

Suddenly, my mind splintered,

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day by

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day by day

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day by day I couldn't read,

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day by day I couldn't read, run,

Suddenly, my mind splintered, day by day I couldn't read, run, sleep.

And my body.

No matter how far I turned the tap,

No matter how far I turned the tap, it was never enough to burn you away.

No matter how far I turned the tap, it was never enough to burn you away. My skin became tender from furious scrubbing,

No matter how far I turned the tap, it was never enough to burn you away. My skin became tender from furious scrubbing, but still,

No matter how far I turned the tap, it was never enough to burn you away. My skin became tender from furious scrubbing, but still, your stain remained.

I was beautiful once,

I was beautiful once, inside and out.

I was beautiful once, inside and out. But now,

I was beautiful once, inside and out. But now, I can't even stand being in my own skin.

I never believed in mint condition.
