To the pretty face,

You are the pretty one. Trust me I know. People walk by, their heads turn. You give them a smile and move along. But as you continue they don't turn around, they don't ask for a date. They won't see what's within. They just see your pretty face. And nothing more.

They won't see your kind heart and warm soul. They won't see you, talk to the person who looks lonely in the grocery store. They won't see you give the shirt off your back to help someone. They won't see the good that you do. They won't see you talk to your best friend tonight. They just see that pretty face. The men especially. They bet how long it will take. To get that stunning girl in their bed. They talk, they make you feel different, they make you feel special. Then they try and guess what they succeeded. Then they leave. It's a bet you see? You don't because you're broken. Ever so broken. To be loved, you had wished. To be held. You can't get passed the feeling of being broken and hurt every damn time. Because a pretty face is all that they see.

They won't even care what's within. You think he was your next prince charming, to sweep you off your feet. But he was the next to break your heart. You lay awake most nights, scared. Asking questions; Will I be loved? Will I ever get commitment? Probably not because it's just a pretty face they see. Nothing more and nothing less. You feel a standard is needed to be held. Dress like that, makeup has to always be done. Don't you ever dare let them see the blemishes, the flaws, the insecurities You will get hurt. They don't want you. They never do. What will the next guy hold? A quick and go? A forever? I will never know. Does he really want me? Or what is between my legs. To know what is behind your shattered heart? Because all he sees is a pretty face.

Maybe you will learn quicker than I did honey. That they just want the pretty face. One day you'll realize and you will run faster than your legs can take you. One day the walls will come down, and they will see more than your pretty face.
