You ask her why she puts on so much makeup
and why she spends so much money on
getting her hair done and why she’s always
buying new dresses and wearing heels.
She tells you it’s because she wants to look
pretty for you. She even paints her nails in
your favorite color and wears that lingerie
you like and twists and breaks her body just
so it could fit into your arms.
Let me now tell you what she’s actually saying.
She does it so that she would be prettier than
the girl you check out while you’re taking her to dinner.
She does it so that she would look better than
the girl sending you pics in your DM.
She does it in hopes you will spend every night
only with her and not the girl that you undress
every Friday night in that cheap hotel.
She knows you aren’t worth it but she loves you
so much that she is crazy enough to put on a facade
every day just to keep you in her life. She is just
doing so much for someone who can’t even
appreciate the treasure he has.
