A Semi-Poetic Rant In Free-Verse

I've spent so long trying to be someone I can't stand-
diva-glam
glitter-queen
red-lipstick
fake lashes
latexvinylleather
fetish goddess dominatrix
burlesque-beauty
skinny
hourglass-figure
corseted in stripper heels
cleavage
platinum blond
and oh so fucking popular

Someone you'll look up to.
Someone you'll adore.
Someone who graces the stages of night-cities,
whose image burns your retinas in the best way,
whose internet omnipresence is infuriating.

I've spent so long trying to be your hero
that I fucking hate myself
almost as much as I hate her.
