Black Poetry : Confidence Broken and in Pieces

Confidence shattered, pride left in tatters
Since you left I've always second guessed me
Deep depression is messin with my mind
No longer pretty, used to think I was a dime
Almond shaped eyes that used to seduce
Now refuse to see my true beauty and identity
Mirrors lie telling me my size 14 frame has not been mantained
But somehow this cannot be, my 'skinny' jeans still fit
Skirts still hug my curves just right and not to tight
So why then do I see myself as a size 23?

Self image destroyed from constant pressure to be
what I can never be...size 3
You were supposed to be by my side
But you turned out to be just another enemy
For you I bent over backwards, stuck fingers down my throat
Even tried to deny myself the food needed to grow
I didn't realize a true man wouldn't worry about
The size of my thighs or the curve in my sides
He would care about my health and how I survived

So now looking in the mirror reflecting on the
Chinky dull puffy eyed not so pretty me
I wonder why I couldn't just be me
Your betrayal left me Broken and in Pieces
But now I know the reasons was just your decievings
You were never attracted to me
It was just the way my butt looked in some jeans.
feeling your deep emotion and heart here
but you right your not a dime but worth much more
ya indeed pose beauty deeper then da eye
and your heart is pure as water life ya head back up high
and walk unto that new wave of love and be all u can be .
