They Love Her

by Kaya Buccigross about a year ago in sad poetry


They Love Her

There's a beast inside

A monster

It seeks to destroy

To destroy what others love

Why should others love her?

This girl the monster hates

Don't they know about her flaws?

Haven't they felt the pain she inflicted?

Why do they keep loving her?

With forgiveness so ready at hand?

The monster cheers with glee

Cuts and scars on her body

Insults the world will see

Now they will know!

Now they will be sure to run

To run from a girl as unstable as she

What's this?

Some of them have stayed

They're checking in on her

Loving her

Protecting her from the monster

How can they love her?

Love her when she's the monster?
