They are all prettier than me

Their eyes like diamonds

Not a crack on their cheeks

Like dolls

The ones I played with

Their flawless skin

Never made me feel less

Their emerald eyes

Didn't make my stone eyes any less

I could see beyond that

Their beautiful souls

Is what I could see

Tell me boy

How you walked in

Chose them over me

And I could not see their souls

How the need to want you

Made me forget those years

I cherished with my dolls

How did you become

The only thing I wanted
