"People were scared. I don't even know what it's like to be scared." She limped up to the door and pushed it open with her free arm. After taking the weight off of her leg for awhile, it felt a little better. "I mean, cosmetically. I was training to be...a brain surgeon doctor. A neurologist. I wanted to know what was misfiring in my own brain so badly that I can't be scared of anything. Even for all our advances in medicine, we're still stupid with the brain, to some degree."
I stare at the girl in the mirror: T-shirt, torn up jeans, no beauty queen.
But the way that you see me, you get underneath me, and all my defenses just fall away, fall away.
I am beautiful with you, even in the darkest part of me. I am beautiful with you;
Make it feel the way it's supposed to be!
You're here with me: Just show me this and I'll believe I am beautiful with you!
