    We’re not that different, you and I,
    not when I look past your easy eyes
    and half-cast brow. Oh won’t you allow
    a peek behind the oils?
    We’ve been dating on and off for a while now,
    and I’m sure it wouldn’t spoil the meaning
    or intent behind your existence.
    You’re superficial but not inhuman,
    because there’s something in your lips
    that tells me so. Oh will you ever know
    what you mean to me? Not all but most
    agree, and they can see, that you don’t
    deserve this.
    Poor Lisa,
    people gawp and glare at you
    like you’re some object.
    Hung on the wall like Benito in ’45,
    A butcher’s prize.
    Objectified.
    Well I’m here to take you away.
    Yes, yes, I know what they’ll say but
    So what?
    Let’s get out of here and all will be well,
    just promise me Lisa, please,
    don’t tell.


    Thanks for reading, all feedback welcome x

    I thought it was very nice! Especially liked the end, "Lisa, please" very nice. I love the punchy rhythm to it as well.



    (Would appreciate some feedback on my stuff if anyone has the time)
