Sarah, oh Sarah,
your lazy eye
happens to be
the least unflattering
feature you bear,
& Quasimodo
would be happy
at comparisons made
to your disgusting face.

So many lies
have been told
they've attached themselves
like paper weights
to the sagging folds
of your flesh,
you droop,
wilted & worn,

but never a flower
because no bloom
ever blossoms into
such ugliness,
you leak bile & other
nasty secretions
like a colostomy bag
wrapped in thorns.

Sarah, you weren't always
this deplorable,
these untruths have
destroyed you,
made you mean,
turned your heart
into an empty
refrigerator
kids are warned
not to play inside.

It's far past time
for you to admit your crimes.
Confession is good
for even the soulless,
even the malformed
& loneliest monsters
sometimes need
a chance at redemption.
