I was like a white shirt
 
that got covered in mud.
 
No matter how I scrubbed,
 
the stain would only spread.
 
I went to darker places
 
to try to feel
comfortable--
 
to blend in.
 
Everyone there still saw 
the mud.
 
I would never be clean
on the outside.
 
So,
 
I drank bleach.

wait - 

am I supposed to laugh at this?

It feels kind of *wrong*
I'm sorry, milo. It's hard enough for me to be motivated to write anything these days. The prompt goes where it will go.
The secret of poetry is cruelty.--Jon Anderson
